As we reported earlier, Stepanov stated that the Health Ministry did not see the need for extending the ongoing lockdown restrictions.

"If the situation begins to deteriorate sharply and the number of patients begins to grow at a hurricane rate, as a result, the number of people who are hospitalized, which can potentially lead to a critical load on the medical system, then we will offer the introduction of a new lockdown," the statement said.
