Russia’s government has not set a date for ending its nationwide lockdown, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Thursday, as concerns grow about the impact of coronavirus on the country’s economy.
Responding to a question from reporters about the point at which the economic impact of the lockdown might be too great, Peskov said this:
“No, there is no such date. There is a specific time period tied to a specific epidemiological situation.”
