Tolstoy noted that scientists and experts have failed to convince citizens, and the “we said, you do” approach does not work.

“We need to explain to people, give reasons, and not try to make them just take their word for it.

Tolstoy expressed gratitude to the doctors "for invaluable work" to save lives.
