More than 200 people in Russia’s capital who are at risk of having contracted coronavirus and now quarantined at home have reportedly disobeyed the terms of their self-quarantine. Moscow Chief of Police Oleg Baranov says the authorities have used street surveillance cameras in the so-called “Safe City” system to track violators.

Moscow officials operate 178 outdoor surveillance cameras. In 2020, the city plans to install another 9,000 cameras.
