Rospotrebnadzor recorded an excess of the SARS incidence threshold in 12 Russian regions, the agency’s website reports.
“In the sixth week of this year, respiratory viruses of non-influenza etiology are identified in the landscape of circulating viruses: parainfluenza viruses, RS viruses and others,” the message says.
It is noted that among children under two years old and from seven to 14 years old, the excess of the weekly epidemiological thresholds for the incidence of influenza and SARS was recorded in four regions.
In six subjects, an excess was found in the age groups from three to six years. Among the population over 15 years old, the incidence thresholds are exceeded in 22 regions of the Russian Federation.
Rospotrebnadzor also recalled that 59% of the country’s population (over 85.9 million people) received vaccinations against influenza and ARVI.
Earlier, the department reported that the Epivakkoron coronavirus vaccine, developed by the Vector Center for Virology and Biotechnology, is effective against new types of COVID-19.
