Moscow and the Moscow region were the only regions which have already passed the peak incidence of coronavirus. This was announced by the candidate of economic Sciences, expert of the Center for economic research, Aghasi Tavadyan in an interview with RIA Novosti.
According to experts, the reason lies in the fact that from the end of April in the capital region increased significantly the number of tests. “The growing number of test and subsequent isolation of virus carriers resulted in a reduction in the rate of spread of disease”, — he explained.
Tavadyan added that other regions are either at the peak at the moment, or reach it in the next one to two weeks.
The expert also stressed that the effectiveness of the regime of self-isolation high if 90 percent of the population adhere to it. He added that the easing of restrictive measures after a significant increase in testing is justified for the capital region. “The same scheme should be used for other regions: to increase testing, to identify asymptomatic carriers and isolate them, thereby preventing the spread COVID-19”, — said Tavadyan.
Earlier, the head of the Department of health of Moscow Alexey Khripun said that the results of a sample survey of 50 thousand people, immunity to coronavirus have about 12.5 percent of Muscovites.
The total number of infection cases in Russia has reached 335 882 85 regions. For the entire period recorded 3388 deaths, recovered 107 936 people.
