Russia's consumer rights and human well-being watchdog Rospotrebnadzor said Monday that 217,607 people were under medical observation as of Sunday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has extended to May 11 national paid leave and self-isolation and ordered the government to prepare a plan for the gradual lifting of restrictions related to the pandemic from May 12.

Currently, Russian regions have mostly introduced self-isolation or some other restrictions. People are allowed to go out only for medical care, work, shopping at the nearest store or pharmacy or walking a pet.

In Moscow and several other regions, digital passes have been introduced to regulate travel by personal or public transport means.

Anna Popova, head of Rospotrebnadzor, told Rossia-24 TV channel on Sunday that if Russians keep violating calls to self isolate, restrictions may be extended until June.
