Moscow, Russia | Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday ordered a week’s paid holiday from October 30 to November 7 in an effort to stem the tide of COVID – 19’s deadly epidemic in Russia.
“Of course, I support the plan to declare October 30 to November 7 non-working,” Putin said.
The week from October 30 to November 7 coincides with the Russian school holidays and was only open on November 1, 2 and 3 due to weekends and public holidays.
He begged the Russians, who did not like him so much, to be vaccinated.
“Please be responsible,” he said, “there are only two ways out of this (epidemic) time: by getting sick or by getting vaccinated.” He said Russia’s low vaccination rate was “dangerous”.
Mr. He called for speeding up the screening of the film and strengthening isolation measures for communication cases.
The Russian president offered the regions the opportunity to start earlier or extend the holiday week if the epidemic situation requires it.
Russia has been facing an epidemic for a month due to a delta variation on the background of sluggish vaccine, lack of health restrictions and disregard for wearing the mask a little distance.
