Moscow is living in a new epidemiological situation.

Whereas earlier calculations determined population immunity at 60 per cent, according to new data, it does not exceed 25.

Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said this in an interview with Rossiya 1 TV channel. Most patients in Moscow identify a new,mutated strain that turned out to be more aggressive.

"We have so-called population immunity, when people have some kind of protection against the virus, was already at 60 percent. These are those who have been sick (or seriously, or asymptomatic, but still sick), and those who have delivered the vaccine - they are already one and a half million today. And those 60 percent had to stop every epidemic, or at least slow it down. Now it is possible to calculate the population immunity in a different way, and it will be not 60 percent, but 25," the Mayor of Moscow said.

The number of COVID-19 cases is rising sharply,with 77 per cent of coronavirus patients aged 22 to 55.

"Those with very high credits, a lot of antibodies, such people are much smaller can resist it. And this is a different epidemiological situation. It's just different. And that's why such explosive growth, such dynamics," the Mayor of Moscow said.

On June 16, The Chief Sanitary Doctor of Moscow adopted a decree on mandatory vaccination of service workers.

You can get vaccinated against coronavirus infection in Moscow for free. Vaccination centres are working on the basis of the city's clinics. They are open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. You can also get vaccinated in private medical clinics, in six flagship centers of state services "My documents." "Healthy Moscow" pavilions in parks will work exclusively for vaccination of residents from coronavirus. They are not temporarily dispensed.

If Muscovites vaccinate the first component of the vaccine before July 11, they will be able to take part in the draw of cars. Five cars will be played once a week.
