In the capital of Yakutia, a mandatory mask regime is introduced. Starting April 28, when visiting public places and using public transport, citizens are required to use medical masks. This measure will operate not only in the capital, but also in all areas of the republic where a strict self-isolation regime is introduced.

According to the press service of the regional government, new restrictions are necessary in view of the worsening epidemiological situation in Yakutia. Over the past day alone, seven new cases of coronavirus were recorded there. Six of them are in the capital of the region, another in the Khangalassky district.

Most of the newly ill - were in contact with previously infected. In total, 59 people are now in the infectious hospitals of the republic. Tough restrictive measures have already shown their effectiveness in Aldan, where for four days not a single new case was recorded.

The head of the republic, Aisen Nikolaev, urged citizens to strictly observe the regime of self-isolation on the eve of the May holidays. Otherwise, holidays can serve as an impetus for expanding the distribution area of ​​coronavirus infection.
