"It is impossible to put off such decisions, to delay them. I ask both the Russian government and the leaders of the regions of the Russian Federation to be guided by just such an initiative approach," Putin added.

The President noted that, based on the experience of countries facing the coronavirus infection, "the most difficult, the most difficult are the first four to five weeks from the beginning of the epidemic." "This means that the next two to three weeks will be decisive for the development of our situation. This is the period when we will need the utmost concentration of all resources, the most strict implementation of the recommendations of doctors, those preventive measures that are being introduced in every region today," he said. .

Putin added that today it is impossible to say with complete, "100%" certainty how the situation in the healthcare sector and the economy will develop both in Russia and in the world. "But we can predict with a high degree of probability, foresee possible scenarios for the development of the situation, which means that we can and must develop and have our own plan of action for each of these options, and then these actions will be timely and effective," the president stressed.
