Introduced in Russia due to the spread of the coronavirus restrictions will soon start to weaken if the pace of new infected will begin to decline. This was stated by the representative of the world health organization (who) in Russia, Melita Vujnović, reports TASS on Thursday, April 30.
“May 12 is the logical date [the beginning of the loosening of the restrictions],” said she. According to Vujnović, the Russians will have to deal with two key weeks, the results of which will be judged on the possibility of easing measures.
However, Vujnović noted that Russia continues to be infected daily, around 2.8-3 thousand people. “It is necessary that this number is constantly decreasing. Then it would mean that the number of people transmitting the virus decreased”, she added, stressing the need to keep on monitoring the number of new cases of infection.
To remove the restrictions you will need to develop a specific plan for each region, said Vujnović. According to her, if you open all at once, it could lead to a new surge of infection. “It is important for all people to understand: all measures — physical distance, hand disinfection, prevention in the workplace — will be very important, so we can cope with the coronavirus, otherwise will start again the chain,” concluded Vujnović.
As at 30 April total number of cases of infection with coronavirus, has exceeded 106 thousand. During the day, has infected more than 7 thousand people. At any time since the beginning of the epidemic died 1073 patient with a coronavirus, 11 619 recovered.
