Sobyanin Says Coronavirus Situation in Moscow ‘Under Control’

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Monday there were signs last week that authorities were getting the coronavirus outbreak under control and that he saw no need to impose tougher restrictions than those already in place, Reuters reported.

Russia reported 15,099 coronavirus cases on Sunday, including 4,610 in the capital Moscow. In a blog on his website, Sobyanin said it was possible that further “targeted” restrictions will be introduced to curb cases.
