Vacation is to blame: the Ministry of Health explained the increase in the incidence of coronavirus

Although the situation in the country as a whole is stable, in some regions there is still an increase in the number of cases of new coronavirus infection, said the head of the Ministry of Health Mikhail Murashko. He connects this with the return of citizens from vacations.

“We see that the situation is quite stable, but, nevertheless, in some regions, due to the return from vacations, increased activity, there are slight changes in the number of patients”, - the minister said on the air of the Russia 1 TV channel.

The head of the Ministry of Health indicated that it is wrong to talk about the waves of morbidity in this case.

He also clarified that currently about 90 thousand people with diagnosed covid are in hospital treatment. At the same time, doctors, Murashko noted, have learned to cope with the coronavirus - to “manage the infection” - much better than at the beginning of the pandemic.

Recall that in mid-May Murashko promised that it would be possible to return to "normal life" after the invention of the covid vaccine. Already today, the developed, registered and released into production domestic drug should be received by the regions.

“We have already shipped the first small batches of vaccine to all regions. Now we intend to test the supply chains along which the vaccine will be delivered to the regions. In particular, the Leningrad Region will be among the first to receive vaccines. In fact, by Monday, the first consignments of the vaccine will arrive in the regions”, - said Murashko.

However, not all citizens of the country want to get vaccinated as soon as possible. According to polls, almost every second Russian does not intend to be vaccinated - neither with a Russian drug, nor a foreign one.

The number of cases of COVID-19 in the Russian Federation over the past day has increased by 5449.94 people have died. The growth rate of cases in Russia was half a percent. In a quarter, the disease is asymptomatic. In total, 1,062,811 cases of coronavirus infection were recorded in the country.
