For example, several dozen online chat rooms have already been created in Moscow, where volunteers have gathered to help doctors, elderly people and anyone who is in a difficult situation due to the spread of the coronavirus. Many of them are already actively providing assistance Methodology: To help the authorities and people came volunteers involved in the most popular areas. As a rule, this is targeted assistance in the delivery of food and medicine to socially vulnerable citizens in need, participation in conducting RAID and preventive measures together with the Ministry of internal Affairs, explanatory work with the population about the existing restrictions, volunteering in quarantine centers, during disinfection, and sewing masks.
