Another 1,250 patients recovered from coronavirus in Moscow, during the entire period of the epidemic, doctors cured over 223 thousand people from this infection. Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development, announced this to reporters on Tuesday, September 8.
“The total number of people who have recovered from the infection has increased to 223502,” Rakova said.
According to her, the number of people who have recovered in the capital continues to increase.
On Monday, Rakova said that 882 people recovered from COVID-19 in Moscow in a day.
After treatment of the patient, special studies are carried out to confirm the absence of infection, and patients receive appropriate recommendations upon discharge. Those who have had COVID-19 are offered to become donors of plasma, which will be used in the treatment of patients with a severe form of this virus.
As the mayor of the capital Sergei Sobyanin said on September 5, mass vaccination against coronavirus in the city is planned at the end of this year – early next. Post-marketing trials of a coronavirus vaccine in Moscow can last from two to six months. This means that the drug will be launched into mass industrial production no earlier than December.
The day before, it became known that the first batch of the coronavirus vaccine was delivered to three Moscow polyclinics – No. 2, 220 and 62. According to Rakova, Muscovites can apply for participation in the study and be the first to receive the vaccine.
The world’s first COVID-19 vaccine, Sputnik V, was registered in Russia on August 11.
