Director of the Institute for Health Economics Larisa Popovich believes - to objectively assess the situation with the coronavirus Covid-19, you need to at least wait for the beginning of spring.
Over the past day, as of 2 february, registered in Russia 16 643 coronavirus case. A month ago, 2 january, this figure was 26 301 infected.
Over the past day, as of 2 february, registered in Russia 16 643 coronavirus case.
A month ago, 2 january, this figure was 26 301 infected. According to statistics, incidence is slow, but has been steadily declining over the past few weeks.
There were assumptions, that Russia has already reached a plateau and in the future the epidemic will surely subside.
Unfortunately, the success of the fight against coronavirus is markedly reduced, when people go to massive street events - such, which we saw 23 January and last weekend. We have already seen an increase in infection after previous actions. I think, soon we will feel it again.
Well, judge for yourself - how is this possible, if it is a respiratory virus ?! It spreads through the air by close contact. If all people stood at a distance of at least one and a half meters, then something else could be discussed.
But they stood close to each other. I think, this can be explained by, that psychological pressure acts no less, than coronavirus.
Usually, outbreaks of respiratory tract infections in our country traditionally occur at the turn of February and March. So you have to wait and see, what will happen.
I very much doubt it. According to statistics, we have less 4 million patients, which is clearly not a quarter of the population. If we are talking about asymptomatic carriers, which are not identified, then first of all it is unconfirmed data, and only words.
Secondly, extremely doubtful, what about 40 million people already suffer from this infection. In theory, you can take another third option - to mention people, resistant to other coronaviruses, causing seasonal colds. Yes, a lot of them. But so far there is no convincing evidence that, that such people really have protection against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Everything remains at the level of hypotheses.
The country is big, everyone needs to be treated for Covid-19
It was cold in January, in these conditions, the incidence of respiratory infections always decreases. In the coming days, a wave of cold is promised in the central zone again. So let's see.
But, I repeat, before ushering in the control of the epidemic, you must wait until the end of February and see, will there be a jump.
Besides, serious anti-epidemic measures continue throughout the country. Moscow began to refuse them, but not all regions. By the way, in St. Petersburg, the dynamics are completely different, than in Moscow, where the number of active cases is growing. So it's too early to generalize and talk about, that the incidence is decreasing everywhere.
