The chief physician of the medical center in Kommunarka Denis Protsenko supported the extension of distance learning for students in grades 6-11. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.
“Everyone around is discussing the distance learning option. The other day, my daughter and I, who is finishing school this year, exchanged views. She, of course, is unhappy with the mostly lost opportunity of live communication with friends, parties and the like. And discipline in the classroom in the lesson is much higher than self-discipline. I tried to explain to her the epidemiological and medical reasons: children and adolescents are mostly asymptomatic contact with the virus (and the example of a daughter with her high IgG level in the absence of the disease was an example to her), while they significantly increase the risks of coronavirus infection in family members with whom live, "the doctor wrote.
Protsenko noted that the distance learning format is a temporary and forced measure.
On the morning of November 5, Sergei Sobyanin said on his website that at the beginning of November, the situation with the coronavirus in the city began to worsen again, and therefore it was decided to extend distance education for students in grades 6-11 for another two weeks - from November 9 to 22.
