A recovered person sheds coronavirus for another 90 days, said the head of Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights (Rospotrebnadzor) Anna Popova. She clarified that in this case the patient himself may no longer have symptoms.

- Our observations today are up to 48 days , and abroad there are up to 90 days. A person who no longer has symptoms, who has excellent blood, all the indicators, but he secretes the virus from the nose, - said Popova at a meeting of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

According to virologist Anatoly Altshtein, on average, a person remains dangerous for two more weeks after recovering from covid.

- But there may be exceptions, exceptions for such a long-term isolation of the virus. It is quite possible to get infected, - quotes him as RIA Novosti.

The expert pointed out that there is no guarantee against re-infection, even if the patient is vaccinated. It will only help increase the chances of avoiding infection.

Let us recall that for the first time since June, more than 700 cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in Moscow. An increase in cases is observed in other European countries. The Austrian authorities, for example, have already announced the coming second wave.

And the Russian immunologist believes that the second wave has come on a global scale.
