LUGANSK, February 15 (Lugansk Media Centre) – “Mir Luganschine” activists have helped more than 2,400 Lugansk People’s Republic residents who have been in self-isolation due to the threat of spread of the coronavirus infection, the press service of the social movement reported.

“Volunteers have responded to 2,434 requests for help since the action started on April 2,” the report said. Last week, activists provided assistance to 45 LPR residents.

On April 1, LPR Head Leonid Pasechnik ordered “Mir Luganschine” to help the self-isolated residents. The next day, the movement began to recruit volunteers. Deliveries of food, medicine to residents began on April 3.

Hotlines (072) 503 55 55 and (0642) 34-55-05 take requests for help from 09:00 to 18:00.

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 62.3 million by now; of those, over 1.4 million people have died. The LPR has confirmed 1,782 COVID-19 cases.

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