Transport on May 13: uiiii, we took the second place in terms of the number of patients, it’s time to remove the restrictions

Of course, we will not catch up with America, but in second place already out. And, you know what? Over the past two months, this is the best issue about transport. According to statistics – we burn and everything burnsbut the message is being restored!

Airlines will give 23 billion rubles from the capsule. This is substantially less than is necessary for their full preservation, but 23 billion more than it could have been without state support. Enough to pay for fuel, airfield services and a little for salaries. Maybe.

On May people began to travel. This seems to be the best time to fly to traditional resorts to the sea. Hello to Simferopol, Sochi and Krasnodar. But by train, of course, it was best to go to the free city of St. Petersburg, where you can walk the streets, and Etsilopp has no right to beat you at night.

there is specifics from Rospotrebnadzor to remove restrictions. The scenario is European: first walks and small shops, at the second stage – education and big shops, at the third – everything else, including hotels and tourism facilities. We look at the dynamics chart of patients: if it is even and beautiful, and there are enough free places in hospitals, the next stage can be included. The goal is not to overwhelm hospitals. Well, if you are over 65 years old with chronic diseases – it’s still self-isolation. It is also interesting that at all stages it is necessary to wear masks and maintain social distance. Citizens are advised to use personal transport: perhaps soon we will see a lot of independent travel by car.
