In order for the inhabitants of the country to return to their former life again, at least 50% of its population must be vaccinated against coronavirus.

Moreover, this must be done by the fall of next year, said Irina Shestakova, president of the International Association of Specialists in the Field of Infections, former chief freelance specialist of the Ministry of Health of Russia on infectious diseases.

"If we cover at least about 50% of the population with vaccinations at least by autumn, the result will be obvious: the number of new cases of the disease will sharply decrease, the healthcare system will be unloaded, and we will gradually return to normal life", - she told RIA Novosti.

Let us remind you that on December 5, mass vaccination of people began in Russia. You can get vaccinated against coronavirus with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, which was developed by the Gamaleya National Research Center. So far, doctors, teachers, social workers, service workers, journalists, drivers, MFC employees and others can get the vaccine against covid. At the same time, every third respondent in the country is already ready to get vaccinated against COVID.
