As horrible as Trump is, he's only evil and stupid, which just manifests as gross incompetence. Putin is evil and intelligent, which is far worse. I'd rather take my chances with stupid.

Google translation of the May of Moscow's decree that I ran to see how it compares/contrasts with Governor Polis' Order here in Colorado:

Today at 19:45
Coronavirus. City restrictions and social support

The decisions taken by the President and the Government of Russia, the Government of Moscow, had a huge effect on reducing the direct contacts of residents in order to prevent the spread of COVID-2019. Movement in the city decreased by two-thirds. And this is very good. Although it is obvious that not everyone heard us.

Nevertheless, the extremely negative turn of events that we see in the largest cities in Europe and the USA causes great concern for the life and health of our citizens.

All countries of the world are struggling to slow down the dynamics of the growth in the number of diseases, they are engaged in so-called smoothing so that the number of seriously ill patients grows gradually, and so that the health care system copes. It is for this that restrictions on social contacts, movement of citizens, self-isolation, etc. are accepted.

Today I signed a decree on additional measures to prevent the large-scale and rapid spread of COVID-2019.

1. Starting tomorrow, the home mode of self-isolation is introduced for all residents of Moscow, regardless of age.

Leaving the apartment is allowed only in cases:

 applying for emergency (emergency) medical care and other direct threats to life and health,
 travel to work if you are required to go to work,
 Shopping at your nearest existing store or pharmacy
 walking pets at a distance not exceeding 100 meters from the place of residence (stay),
 need to take out household garbage.

And in the coming days - after carrying out technical and organizational measures - it will be possible to leave if there is a special pass issued in the manner established by the Moscow Government.

Over the coming week, a smart system of monitoring compliance with the home regime and established rules for the movement of citizens will be deployed. Gradually, but steadily, we will tighten the control necessary in this situation.

With this, the home mode does not limit the rights of citizens to come to the city or to leave Moscow. SPEECH ONLY THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MOVE AROUND THE CITY WITHOUT A GOOD REASON.

2. While on the streets, in shops, on transport and in other public places, citizens are obliged to observe social distance from other people at least 1.5 meters (social distance). The exception is only taxi rides.

Shops, pharmacies and any other organizations in which people are or work are required to ensure compliance with social distance, including applying special markings and establishing a regime of access and stay in buildings and in the adjacent territory.

In addition, the decree introduces the following additional measures to ensure compliance with social distance and social support for Muscovites in the conditions of high alert.

3. Muscovites with a mild course of COVID-2019 are being treated under the supervision of doctors at home.

As prescribed by doctors, they will receive antiviral drugs for free. Also, as a preventive measure, doctors and other specialists involved in counteracting the spread of new coronavirus infection will receive free antiviral drugs.

Free medicine will be delivered by ambulance, clinic staff or volunteers.

4. So that citizens do not lose money on their travel cards, he made a decision to extend the validity period of travel tickets by 5 days for passengers who fulfill the requirement of the home regime from March 30 to April 3 this year. will not make a single trip in public transport.

Previously suspended student and school travel cards will be extended for a month or more from the date of the end of the high alert.

5. Obviously, in the current difficult situation, unfortunately, many Muscovites will lose their jobs. To help them, a special set of support measures will be developed.

As a first step, a regional compensation payment to the unemployed is introduced. The total amount of unemployment benefits (scholarships) and a new payment will amount to 19,500 rubles per month.

The payment will be assigned automatically, without statements.

The measures introduced today are absolutely necessary. But the effectiveness of these measures to restrain the spread of infection depends on the behavior of each of us.

Take care of yourself and your neighbors. Please stay home.

Our citizens they so strong.

They not get coronavirus.

They merely die of strength and passion.

No more questions.

That was my thought too. Just imagine how much worse it would be if Russians weren't the only people on Earth naturally immune to Covid-19.

Yeah, a tombstone appeared in Central Park for him and I thought that would be a good place for him to be buried.

As I guessed in a different thread, Russia is being ravaged by the coronavirus, although I doubt we'll ever find out how many have contracted it or how many have died. But since Putin is locking down the country, it's a safe bet that both figures are probably in the thousands.
