The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin is concerned about the active dynamics of the spread of coronavirus, but believes that the situation remains under control, reports TASS.
According to Peskov, the epidemic is spreading very strongly, which is why very energetic measures are being taken in order to encourage people to comply with strict precautions that have not been followed for a long time.
The question of the reserve of beds for patients in the Russian regions was forwarded by Peskov to the government's operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus. According to him, all these parameters are carefully controlled, and measures are being taken to somehow reserve a certain number of seats and create new ones if necessary.
Earlier it became known that in Russia for the first time more than 15 thousand cases of COVID-19 infection in 85 regions were registered for the first time. In total, since the beginning of the pandemic, 1,369,313 cases have been identified in the country. Also, the number of deaths from coronavirus increased by 232 to 23,723 per day.
Meanwhile, Rospotrebnadzor reported that the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infections could continue until the first decade of November.
