Mitigation of all restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Russia is possible by February. This was reported by Interfax with reference to Russia's Healthcare Minister Mikhail Murashko.
"Pharmaceutically controlled situation should appear. I think we need to talk about next year, I think we get those preventive drugs, which can be managed, in February," Murashko said.
He also talked about "the presence of population immunity, which guarantees the interruption of the chain." According to Murashko, 35-50-60% should get sick in order for this immunity to be developed.
As we reported earlier, the head of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, Mike Ryan, said that it was difficult to understand the cause of the low death rate of people living with Covid-19 in Russia, based on the country's population.
"It is, of course, unusual that the number of deaths in relation to the number of confirmed cases is very low," he stated at a briefing.
At the same time, the expert stressed that some countries might increase the death rate among patients with coronavirus.
