It was told by Alexander Gintsburg, director of the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after N.F. Gamaleya.
- For our country, this infection began as imported, that is, the main source of infection were airports: Moscow, St. Petersburg and further down the list, - the academician recalled.
At the first stage, the scientist stressed, there were less than a dozen transport routes for the delivery and transmission of infection. Now there are hundreds of thousands of hearths.
Recall that earlier Gunzburg indicated that the publication of the interim results of the study of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine makes it possible to start mass vaccination in the coming weeks. He specified that to date, about four thousand people have already received the vaccine, and by the end of this year at least one and a half million Russians will be vaccinated.
