Russia has conducted more than 7.1 million tests for coronavirus – Russian newspaper


The press service of Rospotrebnadzor said that in Russia more than 7.1 million tests for the detection of coronavirus infection have already been conducted. “264 thousand people remain under medical supervision,” the report said, but over the last day in Russia conducted 230 thousand tests to detect infection. “

Unlike voluntary tests for the presence of antibodies in the blood, which have been taken in Moscow since last week, testing for the presence of the coronavirus itself is mandatory, because it is carried out if there is a suspicion of infection – which poses a danger to others. In this regard, the Russian Ministry of the Interior clarified administrative fines for citizens for inaction with the coronavirus. Those who evade testing when suspecting a coronavirus, those who did not report their return from abroad and their actual place of residence, and those who applied for medical care at home without visiting medical institutions in case of signs of ill health can be fined.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs reports that such violations are regulated by Part 2 of Article 6.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation “violation of the law in the field of ensuring sanitary and epidemiological welfare.” A fine of 15,000 to 40,000 rubles is provided for them.
