Read in Russian

LUGANSK, March 4 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The COVID-19 situation in the Lugansk People’s Republic has begun to gradually stabilize, LPR Head Leonid Pasechnik said during a visit to the Prestige clothing factory.

“As you know, the coronavirus infection situation in the Republic is beginning to stabilize to a greater or lesser extent,” Pasechnik said urging residents “not to relax and continue to wear masks” and comply with other requirements by the Emergency Sanitary and Anti-epidemic Commission (ChSPK) under the LPR government.

“We haven’t fully overcome this disease yet. Not all people are vaccinated; we have not yet achieved social immunity as they say, so take care,” he said.

The LPR leader reminded that the decision to partially resume classes at schools was made as the epidemiological situation stabilized.

“However, we have restrictions set by the ChSPK which the school administrations have to comply with in order to fully return to onsite learning. The schools that have not yet complied with these requirements will continue to operate in the mixed attendance mode,” the LPR leader said.

The LPR Ministry of Education and Science is making sure that the quality of education does not worsen at such schools, he said.

The World Health Organisation called the COVID-19 coronavirus infection a pandemic. The first coronavirus infection cases were recorded in China in late 2019.  The number of coronavirus contacts across the world has exceeded 114.6 million by now; of those, over 2.5 million people have died, according to the WHO. The LPR confirmed 3,116 COVID-19 cases.

To prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection, the LPR authorities put the Republic on high alert and introduced lockdown measures.
