What are the symptoms?
Fever
Sneezing
Cough
Difficulty breathing
In the vast majority of cases, these symptoms are typical of the common cold, not coronavirus.
Do you have similar symptoms?

If yes, you must take the symptoms seriously, self-medication is prohibited. Dial 103 to call a doctor.

How is coronavirus transmitted?

Like other respiratory viruses, it is transmitted mainly by airborne droplets when coughing or sneezing. Also, it can spread when you touch any contaminated surface like a door handle. In this case, you get infected when you touch your mouth, nose, or eyes with contaminated hands.

Where can I get tested for coronavirus?

You can get tested for COVID-19 for medical reasons only. Testing is conducted as prioritised by the following risk groups:

  • those who have crossed the border of one of the high-risk countries within the last 14 days, or have contacted with people who came from these countries or with infected persons;
  • patients with common cold symptoms and confirmed pneumonia;
  • patients over 60 with common cold symptoms;
  • patients with common cold symptoms and chronic diseases (cardiovascular, oncological, endocrine diseases, diabetes);
  • patients with common cold symptoms without underlying health issues and recent travel history.

It is up to the doctor to decide on whether you should get tested for COVID-19. Before the test, doctors require as much information as possible (a patient's condition, recent travel history, contacts with potentially infected persons, etc.).

Dial 103 to call a doctor (operators speak English).
How to prevent coronavirus?
  • The most important thing you can do to protect yourself is to keep your hands clean. When you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue.      
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands (usually we do this unconsciously 15 times an hour on average).  
  • If you develop symptoms similar to COVID-19, stay at home and call a doctor immediately.          
  • Stay home and avoid crowded places. Take care of yourself and your close ones!
At home
In transport and other public places
At work
Always wash your hands before meals.
Air rooms on a regular basis, wash the floors, wipe tables, shelves, and dishes.
Explain to your children how germs spread and why a proper hand and face hygiene is important.
If you suspect a coronavirus, isolate a patient in a separate room and call a doctor.
Carry hand sanitizer with you wherever you go to clean your hands.
When in public places, avoid touching any surfaces or objects.
Do not eat food (nuts, crisps, and other snacks) from shared packages or dishes if other people have dipped their fingers into it.
Carry disposable tissues wherever you go. Always cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Do not reuse tissues, throw them away at once.
Frequently clean the surfaces and devices you touch (computer keyboard, office equipment panels, smartphone screen, remotes, door handles and handrails)
Keep your hands clean, wash them frequently with soap and water, or use a disinfectant.
Ventilate the office several times a day.
If you develop symptoms similar to those caused by coronavirus, call a doctor immediately.

After this period is over, even if it is less than 14 days, they are to return to their country.
          How to cross the Russian border now in view of coronavirus?
          Entry to Russia for foreign citizens and stateless persons is restricted from 18 March until 1 May.

          All passengers on international flights at all airports have their body temperature taken.
            I came from Italy and I feel good. What happens if I choose not to self-isolate?
            By Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No.66 of 31.01.2020, coronavirus infection (2019-nCoV) is included in the list of diseases that pose a threat to other people. Non-compliance with the regime entails liability, including criminal liability and up to 5 years of prison (Article 236 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Compliance is CCTV monitored. For non-compliance, you will be placed in the observation centre.
              I live alone. Am I allowed to take out garbage, accept parcels from a courier, go to a pharmacy and buy food while in self-isolation?
              When it is absolutely necessary (to take out garbage, walk a dog), you are allowed to go outside at a time when there are less people outside. Be sure to wear a mask. Please note that isolation compliance is monitored, including by CCTV system.
                Moscow hospitals do not have enough beds to admit patients with suspected coronavirus. Is it true?
                To date, there are enough beds for all patients with suspected coronavirus. Patients are admitted by Infectious Diseases Clinical Hospitals No.1 and No.2, Bashlyaeva Children's City Clinical Hospital, and Maxillofacial War Veterans Hospital on Shabolovka. On 1 March, a new hospital opened in Kommunarka to treat most patients. Sklifosovsky Research Institute, Vorokhobov City Clinical Hospital No.67, and Filatov Cilty Clinical Hospital No.15 are ready to treat COVID-19 patients, too. A mobile infectious diseases hospital complex is being built in Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative areas to open soon. The new hospital will offer 500 beds, with 250 of them in the intensive care unit. Extra beds will be provided, if needed.
                Is EMS ready for the COVID-19 situation?
                Yes, it is. According to international experts, Moscow EMS is one of the most effective in the world. Today, EMS has a sufficient supply of personal protective equipment, including respirators, disposable gloves and glasses, various overalls and other protective equipment.

                After transportation of each patient, regardless of whether they have signs of an infectious disease or not, the car interior and air are disinfected using bactericidal irradiators. After transporting patients to infectious hospitals, the ambulance gets fully sanitised.

                The ambulance station has specialised infectious disease teams including highly qualified physicians that will ensure proper work in case of any infection outburst. There are also special bioboxes to transport patients with highly infectious diseases.
                  What preventive measures have been introduced in schools?
                  Starting 17 March, flexible attendance is introduced both at schools, further education facilities and sports schools.

                  21 March through 12 April, all state general education schools, sports schools and further education facilities will be closed. Schoolchildren will go on studying with the Moscow E-School. Make sure your children observe quarantine and keep away from public places.

                  If requested by parents, daycare groups of up to 12 children can be arranged for 1st-4th form students, with the sanitary requirements observed.

                  Pre-school groups will work as usual, it will be up to parents to decide whether to take their child to the kindergarten or not.
                    Children who have returned from countries with coronavirus infection outbreaks will not be allowed to attend school for 14 days. Instead, school students will get distance education. Is it true?
                    Yes, it is. Starting 10 March, children arriving from China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, France, Germany, and Spain will switch to distance learning (according to Order of the Department of Education and Science of the City of Moscow No.89 'On the Introduction of a High-Alert Mode' dated 6 March 2020). This applies to all Moscow schoolchildren. They will be allowed to attend regular classes after 14 days from the date of their return to Russia.

                    Please remember that, under the decree of Moscow Mayor of 5 March 2020, you must report your return to Russia from high-risk countries to the Moscow hotline by calling +7 (495) 870-45-09. You must also share this information with your classroom teachers and educators.

                        How long is the quarantine?
                        The quarantine lasts 14 days from the date of crossing the border of China, Iran, South Korea, the USA, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Belarus, EU countries and non-EU European countries, or from the date of contacting a coronavirus patient.
                          What is prohibited during quarantine?
                          You must not leave your home, go to school or work. If you work or study in Moscow and you need a sick leave, call the Department of Healthcare hotline by +7 (495) 870-45-09. Your sick leave will be delivered by a courier right to your place. The risk of infecting family members reduces provided you follow a good hygiene, such as using a mask, individual kitchenware, washing your hands frequently and using skin sanitizers, airing the room regularly.
                            How much does it cost to stay at a hospital?
                            Medical care for all patients with suspected novel coronavirus infection is provided free of charge.
                              How am I diagnosed and how long does it take? Is it true that it has three stages? What are they?
                              One test is not enough for a diagnosis. If a person does not have any common cold symptoms, he or she is tested twice. If there are any common cold symptoms, there will be at least three tests.
                                What tests are taken to diagnose COVID-19?
                                COVID-19 is diagnosed using molecular genetic methods — PCR (polymerase chain reaction). This includes nose and oropharynx smears, with other tests as prescribed by a doctor.
                                  When are patients taken to a hospital with suspected COVID-19?
                                  Patients are taken to a hospital in accordance with the Resolution of the Chief Medical Officer of the Russian Federation (No.5 'On Additional Steps to Reduce the Risks of Importation and Spread of a New Coronavirus Infection (2019-nCoV)' dd. 02.03.2020).
                                    How are people treated while they are waiting for their test results? What medications do they take?
                                    Treatment is prescribed by a doctor depending on the symptoms in accordance with Russian and international recommendations. Self-medication is prohibited.
                                      How long will the daily doctor's visits last?
                                      The number of doctor visits is determined on a case-by-case basis throughout the quarantine period (14 days).
                                        Who must be taken to a hospital with a patient?
                                        The decision on whom to take to a hospital is made by the examining doctor, depending on how severe is the condition and how close were the contacts with the patient.
                                          How are rooms disinfected at hospitals with suspected coronavirus patients?
                                          All areas of the hospital are disinfected at least twice a day with disinfectants and physical methods of disinfecting air and surfaces (germicidal lamps and air disinfectors).
                                            Why are doctors allowed to leave the hospital although they have been in contact with patients?
                                            Medical staff use personal protective equipment (masks, respirators, gloves and medical caps). At the end of each shift, they dispose of this equipment and undergo a full sanitary treatment (shower with detergents and disinfectants).
                                              Can I use my phone while in isolation?
                                              All hospital patients may use a mobile phone to contact their relatives at any time.
                                                How do hospital patients get their meals?
                                                For patients with suspected new coronavirus infection, meals are provided in accordance with medical regulations.
                                                  What precautions should be taken after discharge from the hospital?
                                                  After discharge, you must take the same precautions to prevent viral infections as healthy people: avoid mass gatherings of people, wash your hands, ventilate rooms, etc.
                                                    Steps to control the situation

                                                    The Moscow Government is developing targeted social support measures for citizens and businesses whose activities have been restricted due to the high-alert introduced.
                                                    20
                                                    Any implications of quarantine are officially considered a force majeure event.
                                                    If the disease control steps introduced have prevented citizens or businesses from fulfilling their obligations, this is considered a force majeure event, as stipulated in the Moscow Mayor’s decree. These measures reduce formal legal pressure on businesses and citizens and enable them to review the terms of their contracts and agreements.
