Sobyanin: the system coped brilliantly with the pandemic

the health System during a pandemic worked as a single machine, and coped brilliantly with the threat, said the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin in an interview with Paul Zarubino, the author of the program “Moscow. The Kremlin. Putin” on TV channel “Russia 1”.

“it is Clear that anything is not perfect. Someone out there didn’t call so arrived a little late, or something not said. But overall, the system coped brilliantly. All from top to bottom, the ambulance service, testing, laboratory, that’s easy. The whole system worked as a single machine. I doubt that at least one city or one country, as happened,” — said Sobyanin.

He remembered that at first it was “a complete misunderstanding” of the danger.

“Called me, say, “mad or what, what are you doing? We’re going to Italy, to France, something else. And that us tickets or something to pass?” It was a complete misunderstanding. Today, there are dozens of infected or calculated, and after some time the thousands. And then the townspeople I asked: “Dear mayor, why do you not make decisions in a timely manner, have not you seen what happens in other countries?” I say, “Well, you see, you yourself didn’t like at the time, so I did as you wanted.” That’s not right,” said the mayor.

In many cities and countries there is a “humanitarian catastrophe”, and it was not a city of the third world. “It’s developed cities, developed countries, — said Sobyanin. If they failed, what will we have when we have this blow? How will we survive?”.

the Mayor noted that people like to criticize the government and the state. “Always well everywhere except in our country. So, our system has proven to be one of the most efficient, able to protect citizens.Even in comparison with the strong, powerful States. And many of those who ended up in Spain, France, Italy — they wanted to come to Russia”, — reminded Sobyanin.

a Special edition of the program “Moscow. The Kremlin. Putin” with a great interview of the President of Russia during a pandemic, will show the channel “Russia 1” at 22:00 on June 28.
