MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. Mobilization capacities of Russian healthcare system make its possible not to impose a new nationwide lockdown, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday.

"Our healthcare system demonstrated large mobilization capacities and capabilities, this is an obvious fact. These mobilization capacities help us move through the second wave without significant restrictions in economy, without disrupting the economic process, without driving our country into a lockdown. All this happens only because the mobilization capacities of our healthcare allow us do that," Peskov said.
