Now they take the test once - when the disease has just been confirmed in one of the family members. “It is obvious that those who remain to live with their sick relative are at a special risk group for coronavirus. The risk of getting sick remains both at the initial stage of the disease and throughout the entire illness, so we decided that they will be tested twice for coronavirus”, - said the deputy mayor of the city Anastasia Rakova. Her words are quoted by TASS.
In Moscow, the number of new cases of the disease detected daily continues to grow at a rapid pace. Over the past day, coronavirus was confirmed in 7.9 thousand people. At the same time, as Rakova herself said earlier on Friday, up to 1.5-1.7 thousand patients are hospitalized every day. Most of them are hospitalized in a severe form because the sick go to the doctor late and self-medicate at home. The deputy mayor of the city recalled that coronavirus is not a disease that should be treated on your own at home.
Earlier, Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin announced the formation of population immunity in already half of the capital's residents. At the same time, since the beginning of the spread of the epidemic, according to official data, in Russia, the coronavirus has been confirmed in just over two million people.
