Russia removes the remaining Covid-19 restrictions

Russia’s consumer protection watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, said Russia’s case load has declined “steadily” over the past four months. 93% of currently confirmed cases claim to be mild or asymptomatic.

“Rospotrebnadzor has suspended previously imposed restrictions as the intensity of the epidemic process continues to decline,” he said in a statement.

In addition to lifting Maskman dating, Russia will allow restaurants and cafes to continue to operate outside of business hours.

Russia has experienced five Covid-19 waves since the beginning of the pandemic, with some 204,000 latest peaks recorded on February 11.

The number of registered infections has declined in the months since then, reaching 3,100 on Thursday.

Deaths from the coronavirus declined in the spring of 2022, but dozens of people die from the disease every day in Russia.

The Russian region, where President Vladimir Putin was tasked with deciding on his own response during a pandemic, has begun to lift some restrictions in recent months as the number of incidents has declined.

Moscow, the epicenter of the pandemic in Russia, withdrew much of the remaining Covid-19 regulations, including the city-wide mask mandate, in mid-March.

Rospotrebnadzor said the expert did not anticipate a surge in Covid-19 infections caused by Omicron variants this summer.

However, he warned that if Covid-19 infections began to increase again, mask mandates and restaurant curfew could be reinstated.
