"The worst-case scenario that has been calculated is 35,000 daily cases of the disease," the statement said.
It was noted that the scenario of 20 000 new cases of the disease per day was quite realistic.
"Now it is very difficult to make any accurate forecasts, but forecasts for a daily amount of 20 000 are quite realistic because we already see acute respiratory diseases, infections. It is likely that if the trends that are now being recorded continue, then the figure of 20 000 is quite real," reads the message.
