Staunton, July 25 – Unless Russians get vaccinated and take other steps to improve the epidemiological situation in their own country, they are likely to find that other countries, including popular destinations like Turkey, will again prevent them from travelling there, putting their vacations at risk (ura.news/news/1052495988).
Today, Russian officials reported registering 24,072 new cases of infection and 779 new deaths from the coronavirus over the last 24 hours, with the situation in Moscow deteriorating and driving the former number up while the latter represents only a slight decline from yesterday’s record daily toll (t.me/COVID2019_official/3357 ).
The situation in many regions continues to deteriorate, and officials are adopting ever harsher measures to try to bring the pandemic under control. Not surprisingly perhaps, Chechnya has adopted the most draconian, forcibly vaccinating people who purchase fake vaccination certificates and requiring such certificates to move from one village to another (regnum.ru/news/society/3324376.html, kavkazr.com/a/v-chechne-voditeli-bez-spravok-o-vakcinacii-ne-mogut-popast-v-groznyj/31357968.html and t.me/bazabazon/7621).
Meanwhile, medical experts provided another compelling reason for getting the shots. Those who don’t and contract the virus are very likely to suffer serious cognitive consequences including the deterioration of their memory function (regnum.ru/news/3329283.html).
