Answering the question whether the second wave of coronavirus will provoke a decision to allow all residents of Moscow to walk freely, Alstein noted that "this will not be the second wave, it will continue the same."

According to him, “the wave fluctuates,” and the second wave “can begin when we stop the first to dozens” of detected cases per day. His words are quoted by the Arguments and Facts website.

The expert added that for people over 65 years of age “it’s better to move around in tight masks” because coronavirus is very dangerous for them.

Earlier, the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, announced that Moscow will begin on June 1 the second stage of easing the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus.
