in Crimea three kindergartens and 21 school classes were transferred to distance learning


Due to the new coronavirus infection in Crimea, three kindergartens and 21 school classes were transferred to distance learning. Russian-controlled Minister of Education and Science of the annexed Crimea Valentina Lavrik told on September 15 at a meeting of the headquarters to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Three preschool educational organizations ceased their activities and 21 classes in general educational institutions were transferred to distance learning – this is 0.7% of the total number of students and pupils,” Lavrik said.

Recall that Rospotrebnadzor reports on a sharp increase in the incidence of pneumonia in Crimea.

September 15 Aksenov urgently convened a meeting in connection with the coronavirus pandemic in Crimea, during which he said that no new rules and restrictions would be introduced due to the epidemic.

In total, for the current period in Crimea, according to the information of the Russian authorities, 3341 cases of new coronavirus infection have been registered. 94 of them were imported from abroad, 124 cases were imported to neighboring Russia and identified by contact with them, 2503 cases were detected when seeking medical help and contact with persons with laboratory-confirmed results, 620 – during laboratory screening of healthy individuals.

The data of the Russian authorities in Crimea and Sevastopol on the incidence of coronavirus has not been confirmed by international organizations and other independent sources. Human rights activists argue that these statistics are significantly underestimated, since they do not reflect many important factors, including infection in the ranks of the Russian military and special services.
