In Russia, in September, the coronavirus was most often detected in office workers. About this in an interview with “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” told Head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova.

“Teachers, by the way, rarely get sick with covid. Most of the cases in September are office workers, ”she said, answering the question if there are statistics on teachers who are sick with COVID-19.

According to Popova, the majority of those infected with the coronavirus infection last month were employees who were away and on vacation all summer, and now “have gathered and are just learning new rules of social behavior”.

The head of Rospotrebnadzor also noted that a slight increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 was recorded among doctors. “Teachers are properly protected by the masks they have to wear when they interact with each other,” she explained. According to her, today in Russia “there are practically no cases” when a teacher was infected from a child. “

The Ministry of Health appealed to Russians with an appeal to spend the weekend at home

In October, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, in connection with the increase in the number of people infected with coronavirus infection, ordered all capital enterprises and organizations to transfer at least 30% of employees to remote work. At the same time, companies must report this to the city authorities on a weekly basis. Otherwise the mayor threatened fine or suspension of activities.

In addition, Sobyanin obliged entrepreneurs provide weekly data on workers transferred to remote locations. In particular, it is necessary to provide the numbers of their mobile phones and cars.
