“Elderly people are at risk. Therefore, it is important that they have as little contact with others as possible, because the percentage of fatalities is the highest among people over 65 years old. Priority hours are valid from 10:00 to 12:00. The initiative will last for quarantine period. I hope that all trade and service establishments will follow this," Stepanov said.
