It is premature to talk about the third wave of coronavirus in Russia. This was announced on Tuesday, March 30, by the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko.
“Today the incidence rate is decreasing daily, so it’s too early to talk about the third wave,” he said on the air of the Dok-Tok program on Channel One.
According to the minister, now the number of hospital beds for patients with COVID-19 has decreased to about 120 thousand.
Murashko also noted that there is currently enough vaccine against coronavirus in Russia. He stressed that the production complex is doing well.
The possibility of a third wave of a pandemic in Russia earlier that day was announced by the Deputy Head of the Ministry of Health Tatyana Semyonova. According to her, this is indicated by the incidence rates of COVID-19.
At the same time, the head of the department of the Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, Vadim Pokrovsky, in turn, noted that a surge in the incidence of COVID-19 is not expected in Russia. He pointed to the rate of growth of the immune layer, both due to those who had been ill and due to those who were vaccinated.
The Kremlin said the day before that the epidemiological situation with COVID-19 in the country inspires cautious optimism.
