The May Day demonstration and other mass events were canceled in the Primorsky Territory. There will also be no Easter procession on May 2 and the "Immortal Regiment" procession on May 9.

According to the press service of the regional government with reference to the deputy director of the regional department of internal policy Olga Ivchenko, this decision was made due to the poor epidemiological situation for coronavirus.

“The health of the inhabitants of the region is the most valuable resource, something that in no case should be risked,” she said.

During the day, 34 cases of COVID-19 infection were registered in the region, the total number of those infected is 43.

Earlier in Yakutia again imposed a ban for all public events on weekends and holidays. Due to the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus, the authorities have tightened the previously weakened restrictive measures.
