Moscow to close spur over safety concerns after heavy equipment failure

Moscow, the Russian capital in which coronavirus cases are rising by the thousands daily, said on Friday it would temporarily close the main street for buses and metro trains in the neighbourhood of St Petersburg, following health concerns.
The city administration had attempted to implement a one-time trial to check the safety of public transport vehicles as well as supply them with ventilators and ventilators with finished capacity.
Seventy-four people died during the trial.
Moscow became as the centre of the outbreak in Russia, which it said was the largest outside China, killing more than 2,700 people and raising the overall death toll to 12,197.
Moscow city authorities are also mulling lifting its closure of the city’s public transport system across the oblast of Moscow, which is one of the harshest regions in Russia and was the centre of the initial outbreak.
