The representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Russia Melita Vujnovich noted that over the past three days in the Russian capital the situation with coronavirus infections has stabilized, however, it is too early for a new stage of the struggle.

On April 23 in Moscow, 1959 new cases of coronavirus infection were recorded, and a day earlier - 2548 cases. On April 21, 3083 new cases were registered.

According to Vuynovich, it is necessary to approach the new stage of the struggle with extreme caution and gradually, on this issue WHO will interact with the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare and Health.

- We see a cautiously optimistic situation in Moscow over the past three days. The situation seems to be stabilizing somewhat, but we still have to wait, ”Vuinovich said on the air of the Russia-24 channel.

At the same time, the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, stated that although the growth in the number of infected people is not dramatic, the problem continues to grow and "cope with the challenges that exist," "Moscow will have" a few more weeks"

Talking about positive dynamics is still too early, the mayor said.

“I see that we have not even reached the middle of the path,” Sobyanin stated.

Note that last week the number of tests for coronavirus decreased due to a lack of pipettes. The Moscow Mayor admitted that "getting them is not so simple" and will have to "conclude contracts with foreign companies".
