Head of Ingushetia: We hope that Ramadan will help to stop the epidemic

Magas, April 20, 2020

The head of Ingushetia, Mahmud-Ali Kalimatov, in a video message to residents of the republic, spoke out against excessively harsh measures towards violators of the self-isolation regime.

“In some districts people continue to hold weddings despite of calls from the authorities and religious leaders. Thank God, the holy month of Ramadan is approaching and we hope that people will finally sit at home. I am advised to take the strictest measures, but I do not want to do that. I think that people should show responsibility for themselves and for others”, said Kalimatov.

Earlier Kalimatov also urged to get the sick persons to hospitals only on an ambulance. At the same time, the head of the republic emphasized the inadmissibility of violation of self-isolation, taking into account the severe coronavirus situation in the region, the “Club of Regions” reports.

The population of Ingushetia is 507 thousand people, with 269 infected up to date.
