Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said that waiting for a return to normal after the coronavirus pandemic before February is not worth it. First, an active vaccine should appear and immunity form.

- What is a normal life? These are trips to concerts, flights, full-time work, good rest. In my opinion, it is unlikely that this will happen before February. Should be broken the chain of transmission, - reports Interfax the words of the head of the department.

The Minister noted that the mask is still worth wearing on the street. However, Murashko added, it all depends on the specific situation. For example, if there are no crowds nearby, then you can do without a mask - "for example, in the country".

"But, if we are talking about enclosed spaces, driving along city streets - here wearing a mask is justified. Plus, you need to consider that this is an airborne infection, and the mask is a barrier, it inhibits the virus. There are rules for changing masks after a couple of hours, you need to follow these rules”, - the minister said.

According to him, while the infection has not become "fully pharmaceutically controlled", and therefore it is not possible to remove the mask yet. It will be possible to stop wearing them only after the appearance of "funds in which we will be 100% sure - both for prevention and for treatment".

“And especially when collective immunity appears, then the masks can be removed”, - Murashko concluded.

At the same time, British doctors claim that the vaccine does not protect against the disease itself, but only helps reduce the severity of its symptoms. There’s not much to be expected from injections, says Kate Bingham, head of the British government task force on vaccines.

The fact that to date, none of the developed vaccines can be called potentially effective against coronavirus, was also announced by WHO.
