“Like doctors from other medical institutions, I can see that the situation is quite strained,” said Protsenko. “It is still unknown whether the incidence curve gets flattened or another spike in mortality rate should be expected. My colleagues and I analyze the coronavirus situation on a daily basis.”
At the same time, Alexei Svet added that the human factor might have a significant impact on the epidemiological situation.
“Well, the fact that the inpatient admission has leveled out, as it were, is really encouraging,” said Alexei Svet. “On the other hand, the situation remains tense because it is impossible to predict exactly what will happen next. In this regard it would be desirable for people to be disciplined and stay away from going en masse to barbeques out of town. This might aggravate the coronavirus situation in Russia.”
