“Currently, all universities use a distance or blended learning format.

A blended learning format operates in 89.4% of universities.

Exclusively distance learning technologies are used in 10.6% of universities," TASS said in a statement.

Earlier, the head of Tuva, Vladislav Khovalyg, signed a decree on restrictive measures due to the increase in the incidence of COVID-19.

In particular, schoolchildren from the first to the eighth grades and university students were transferred to distance learning.

Also, the Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg, Irina Potekhina, said that more than 2 thousand classes in the city's schools have switched to distance learning due to the situation with the coronavirus.
