Russian Armed Forces put thousands of soldiers on a quarantine after they participated in rehearsals for the Victory Day parade in Moscow. The Guardian reported that on Friday. 

"The defence ministry said it would be sending the soldiers, estimated to number 15,000, back to their bases, where they would be put under a two-week quarantine. The ministry did not indicate that any of the soldiers had been infected with the coronavirus. The announcement came days after Vladimir Putin postponed celebrations for Victory Day on 9 May, a significant holiday in Russia usually marked by a military parade in Red Square and events where Russians pay respects to victims and veterans of the second world war", writes the outlet.

Earlier, we reported that scientific experiments showed the activity of Covid-19 reduces when it is exposed to sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity and alcohol. Bill Bryan, head of science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security said so as quoted by CNN in their story.

“Our most striking observation to date is the powerful effect that solar light appears to have on killing the virus — both surfaces and in the air. We’ve seen a similar effect with both temperature and humidity as well, where increasing the temperature and humidity or both is generally less favorable to the virus,” Bryan told reporters. "The virus is dying at a much more rapid pace just from exposure to higher temperatures and just with exposure to humidity. … You inject sunlight into that, you inject UV rays into that, … the half-life goes from six hours to two minutes".
