“The position of the government is unchanged – there will be a weekend quarantine. In addition, it has been argued that this is a smooth preparation for a full lockdown. Numbers were voiced, this pessimistic version of the lockdown will be December 10-15, in the optimistic version – December 20-25 for several weeks,” the message says.
