The governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Beglov on the air of the channel ” 78 ” criticized those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19.

According to the governor, even if an unvaccinated person follows the safety rules in a pandemic, he can get infected from someone who does not, “and then the chain goes”. “You know, we should treat such people with zero tolerance, because it is not only harmful for ourselves, for our loved ones, others, it is also a burden on healthcare,” Beglov believes.
