    Moscow ordered service-sector and municipal workers to get vaccinated amid a spike in Covid-19 hospitalizations, as the Kremlin denied any reversal in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s opposition to compulsory inoculation.

    The vaccination drive will cover more than 2 million people, Deputy Mayor Anastasia Rakova said Wednesday, the state-run RIA Novosti news service reported. That’s 60% of workers at consumer-facing businesses and city employees, including health professionals and teachers, who must receive a dose of one of Russia’s domestically-developed vaccines by July 15, according to an order from Moscow’s public-health office published Wednesday.

    The number of Covid-19 cases in the Russian capital has soared this month as the highly-contagious delta variant first identified in India spreads, with daily infections nearing December highs.
