      and no half measures.

      An epidemiological investigation is being carried out on each occasion, everywhere, not just in the army. In this case, those who flew on an airplane are contacts of the first level - they are quarantined in a hospital, those who contacted them are contacts of the second level - they are quarantined at home.

    And thank God that there are no patients with the coronovirus in the army! And that the crew of the boat is healthy! It’s good that at least some information was given about the readiness of military doctors if someone suddenly gets sick with a coronovirus! hi

    Do you know what touched me? This morning I had a correspondence with the site administrator. He saw trolling and provocation in the link I gave yesterday to the "new newspaper". We got a warning. And now they print a message from RBC with a link to source. And nothing. An official, albeit dubious, publication means provocation, and source or an article without a signature is normal.
    But, in any case, the health of sailors and a specialist. What would they only read about the infection in the newspapers!

      No wonder. I've been disconnected like this several times already. I got the impression that the admins' intelligence on this site is at the penguin level.

    That's right, on the boat there is nowhere to go from each other ... one will get sick, and the whole crew will "lie down" ... and if on a hike?

      107 young, healthy. strong men locked up, idleness, if you almost drove your head around ... I imagine they were released from quarantine and scattered home like shrapnel. drinks .

    Properly conducted preventive measures. What else can I say - well done, they did everything right!
    On the side of the submariners is a professional habit of isolation: that they have 10 days in the base on board versus 3 months in the campaign ..

    This is good news, unlike the situation on the striped carriers.
