Experts noted a record reduction in jobs in the service sector :: Business :: RBC

Against the background of this reduction, as well as pessimistic expectations for the next year, service companies have sharply accelerated staff reductions.

“The sudden shock to the business environment became apparent in April, when the influx of new orders dried up and companies reduced employment at a historically record pace,” Jones notes.

In mid-April, Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to pay small and medium-sized enterprises for each employee, provided that at least 90% of their staffing level is 12 130 rubles each. per month, which is equal to the current minimum wage. However, according to the president of the Federation of Restaurateurs and Hoteliers of Russia (RFiO) Igor Bukharov, most of the restaurants and cafes that make up a significant part of service enterprises cannot count on a subsidy, since such payments are not supposed for those who sell alcohol. According to Bukharov, due to the lack of adequate assistance from the state, more than 70% of Russian cafes and restaurants can leave the market.

The European Commission has predicted Russia’s fall in GDP is double the sanctioned

On May 6, the head of the Ministry of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov said that according to the results of April, the indicator of economic activity in Russia decreased by 33%.

According to the forecast of the European Commission published on the same day, Russia’s GDP in 2020 will decrease by 5%, which will be the worst result since 2009 and more than double the recession of 2015, when the sanctions imposed by the West became the reason for the deterioration in the economy.

Over the past 24 hours, more than 11 thousand cases of COVID-19 infection have been detected in Russia; Russia has reached the fifth place in the world in the total number of infections. On Thursday, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin signed a decree on tightening restrictions, requiring all public transport passengers and store visitors to wear masks and gloves. The mayor also extended the previously imposed restrictions on the work of non-food stores, cafes, restaurants and other enterprises in the service sector until May 31.

Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which is the cause of COVID-19 disease, spreads quickly between people, due to the fact that it combines the genomes of different properties of other coronaviruses. This conclusion was made by scientists from Cornell University in the United States. The results of their research are published in the journal Journal of Molecular Biology.

Microbiologists compared the structure of the new coronavirus with other coronaviruses and found that 96% of its genomic sequence coincides with the SARS-CoV-1 genome, the SARS virus that spread in 2003. At the same time, he has the features of a benign human coronavirus HCoV-HKU1.

Scientists have estimated the ability of coronavirus to maintain infectivity for days

It is noted that the SARS virus is not very contagious, but has a high mortality rate (about 10%). HCoV-HKU1, in turn, is highly contagious, but almost harmless. This combination makes the new coronavirus highly contagious and hazardous to health, scientists conclude.

The authors of the study concluded that the virus causing COVID-19 is dangerous for primates, cats, ferrets and minks, as their cells have receptors similar to human ones.

In March, scientists from the National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases of the United States reported that coronavirus is able to maintain infectivity outdoors for several hours.

On some surfaces, such as cardboard, the virus remains contagious for 24 hours. On plastic and stainless steel, the virus will be infected within a few days. Coronavirus lasts about four hours on copper, and three hours in the air.
