“As far as the period before New Year and immediately after it is concerned, I am not inclined to introduce tougher restrictions], if the situation allows it,” he said, answering the relevant question during a phone-in session on Saturday, December 12.
At the same time, Ivan Belozertsev drew attention to the fact that if there is a significant increase in the incidence, then “there will be no other way”.
“If we comply with all the requirements, as we do today, [...] I am sure most likely, such measures will not be needed. We'll see what the situation is like after New Year's Day,” the governor noted.
