Saint Petersburg will tighten Corona measures from next month | Abroad

Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, will again tighten Corona measures from November 1 to limit the spread of the virus.

From November, adults must be able to show that they have been vaccinated or recovered in order to attend certain events, such as major sporting events. From mid-November, certification via QR code is also required to go to fitness rooms, theatres, cinemas, and museums. In December, the Corona Corridor will be extended to include the food industry and shops.

There is an exception for people who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons.
Employers have also been directed to allow unvaccinated employees over the age of 60 to work from home.

As in many other regions of Russia, the number of corona infections in Saint Petersburg has increased in recent weeks. On Monday, the authorities recorded 3,097 new infections within 24 hours.

Russians are skeptical about Corona vaccines

A new record was broken across Russia, with 34,300 infections in one day. There have also been 998 deaths recorded, but experts say the number is much higher than the official figures.
Russians are very skeptical about corona vaccines. According to the latest figures, just under a third of 146 million Russians have been fully vaccinated.

The Kremlin also said the regions will decide the coronavirus measures. So a national lockdown is not being considered.
