A WEEK OF HOLIDAY IN RUSSIA Russians “enjoy” since yesterday a week of paid vacation by decree of the president, Vladimir Putin, who wants to put a stop to the advance of the coronavirus pandemic amid daily records of cases and deaths due to the reluctance of many citizens to get vaccinated and meet health standards. The pandemic worries the continent, mainly in Central Europe, which is not spared the rebound in infections either.

Putin has taken advantage of the bridge of the Day of Unity of the People of Russia on November 4 to stretch the non-working days throughout the country, where today there has been another maximum since the start of the pandemic with 40,251 new infections.

It is the second time in a week that new infections have surpassed the 40,000 mark in the 85 regions of the country.

In turn, there were 1,160 deaths, only three less than on Friday, when deaths from covid-19 marked a new daily maximum.

A BLACK OCTOBER The statistics agency Rosstat said the day before that 44,265 people died from coronavirus in the month of September alone, a figure lower than in August and July, but almost double than in June.

This figure would raise the total of deaths in the pandemic so far to about 450,000, almost double the 237,380 that the Government collects.

And the data for October have not yet been published, a black month in view of the daily records that it has chained for weeks.

So far the Russian authorities have avoided imposing a lockdown and shutdown of the economy as they did for a few months in 2020.

The Russian leader gave the regions the option of advancing a few days and extending paid vacations beyond November 7 according to their epidemic situation.

In six regions, Voronezh, Nizhny Novogorod, Novogorod, Kursk, Samara and Perm, non-working days entered into force on the 25th, while in another seven, in particular in Moscow and the Moscow region, the Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad , Adygea, Khakassia, Smolensk and Rostov, the measure started already on Thursday.

In most Russian entities, measures such as the closure of non-essential businesses and businesses have been implemented alongside paid holidays, as is the case in Moscow.

Massive sporting, cultural and entertainment events are also prohibited, kindergartens and schools have been closed, and visitors to museums and theaters – which can only hold half the capacity – are forced to show the QR code that shows that they are vaccinated or they have passed the disease.
