(EFE) .- Officials in the Russian capital this Wednesday ordered compulsory vaccination of at least 60% of workers in the service sector. People are reluctant to get vaccinated And a dramatic increase in corona virus infections.
“In view of the complex epidemic situation, the head of health of the city of Moscow today ordered the compulsory vaccination of employees of the service sector,” the mayor of the Russian capital Sergei Sofianin announced in his blog.
To date, Russian officials have insisted that the vaccine was voluntary, but the reluctance of people to get vaccinated has led to a reversal of the initial approach, in addition to a sharp increase in infections in the country.
Rospotrebnadzor, for its part, ordered Moscow companies to arrange for the first dose of the vaccine before July 15 and the second dose before August 15.
This decision was immediately copied by the authorities of the Moscow region, where there is a significant increase in epidemics, which is higher than the peaks recorded last year.
The order of the Moscow health authorities confirms that the positive level of the corona virus has risen as of the 6th of last month, increasing from 11% to 20% daily.
The Russian organization responsible for consumer protection, Rospotrebnotzer, has ordered Moscow companies to arrange for the first dose of the vaccine before July 15 and the second dose before August 15.
“In the last 24 hours, more than 70 people have died, and most of them would not have gotten sick even if they had been vaccinated in time,” the Moscow mayor lamented today.
Although the vaccine is a personal matter, he assured that it will be stopped when citizens take to the streets and become “co-participants in the epidemic process”.
“When you work in a place that provides (vaccine) services to a large number of people under infections it is no longer a personal matter”
“Furthermore, it is no longer a personal matter to work in a place (vaccine) that provides services to a large number of people under infections, regardless of personal safety measures,” he stressed.
In the Russian capital and the Moscow region, additional health measures have been put in place to control infections, such as banning restaurants, restaurants and bars from serving the public at night.
During a visit to a hospital this Tuesday, Sofianin warned that there had been an “explosive increase” in Govt-19 cases in Moscow in recent days and that hospital admissions for critically ill patients had increased by 70%.
However, the mayor of Moscow rejected the implementation of isolations or imprisonment.
Russia has four self-manufactured anticoagulant vaccines – Ptosis Sputnik V, Epivacorona and Govivak and the single-dose Spotnik Lite – the vaccination campaign in the country, which began in January this year, is progressing slowly, mainly due to reluctance to vaccinate population.
A study by the Levada Center last May found that 62% of Russians were unwilling to be vaccinated with Spotnik V.
