Russian President Vladimir Putin is confident that the coronavirus situation in the country will continue to improve thanks to the measures undertaken by the authorities, APA reports citing TASS.
"It is natural that after the vacation season in such city like Sevastopol the [incidence] of the coronavirus infection has increased a little like in many other regions. It is understandable, due to summer season, when people interact rather closely, get together in large groups - the same is going on in the rest of the world," the head of state said during a videoconference with select regional leaders on Thursday.
"I am confident that due to the measures implemented by us both on the federal level and on the regional level this situation will gradually improve," Putin stressed. The President also noted that "by itself [the situation] won’t improve, one needs to undertake the necessary steps and implement measures."
