Infectious disease specialists predict that the peak of coronavirus spread in Russia will be in June
Infectionists predict a peak in the spread of a new viral disease in Russia in June-July. Earlier experts believed that with the onset of the warm season the virus will disappear on its own, but doctors do not hope so.
“Experts agree that the highest rates of growth in the number of cases in Russia are expected in June-July this year. The number of deaths from complications will also increase, but the number of people who have recovered will also increase, ”Interfax writes with reference to the words of the infectious disease specialist Nikolai Malyshev.
According to him, now an increasing number of Russians suffer the disease without symptoms. If previously their number was 10-30%, now the disease is asymptomatic in every second patient infected with coronavirus. The doctor also noted that there is no need to count on the speedy development of a vaccine. If it is created, then no earlier than a year and a half after the start of research.
Virologist Sergei Netesov previously told Novye Izvestia that doctors already know at least two types of coronavirus: the first is more infectious, but less pathogenic, the second, on the contrary, is less infectious, but more pathogenic. Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vadim Govorun believes that the second outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic in the world will occur this fall .
Now in Russia, 27.9 thousand cases of infection with a new disease have already been recorded, the number of deaths from complications per day has increased to 232 people, about 2.3 thousand have already been ill with coronavirus. The number of people infected with a new disease in the world exceeded 2 million people, 136.5 thousand died. Almost half a million have recovered.
