Russia may step over the daily increase of 15 thousand registered cases of coronavirus infection if people do not stop being irresponsible about security measures, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova told Channel One, Interfax reports.
"Since we have a one-stage rise in the whole country, then, naturally, the numbers are higher today. If we do not stop being so irresponsible about those people who relate to the situation in this way, we, unfortunately, can cross this threshold. ", - she said.
Popova noted that in the fall, the surge in the incidence of COVID-19 was higher than the spring. “The growing numbers are also due to the fact that in the spring the wave of covid was gradually spreading across the country: first, large cities, including Moscow, then spread beyond the Urals, to Siberia. Today, in all regions, in all cities, in almost all populated At the points there are people who have met with covid, and there are sources of this infection, "said the head of Rospotrebnadzor.
The head of Rospotrebnadzor stressed that specialists are not yet fully aware of the insidiousness of the coronavirus and what the severity of the course of the disease will be if a person gets sick. “We still have to work, but the knowledge that we now have - knowledge of epidemiology, knowledge of the clinic, knowledge of risk groups - this is already a lot to protect the population,” she said.
The authorities are taking all necessary measures to avoid overloading the health care system in the country due to the pandemic. At the same time, everyone should do everything necessary to prevent coronavirus, Popova said.
Popova added that citizens should not risk their health and the health of their loved ones. “It would be good for a person to always remember about his loved ones, about the people to whom he is dear, and that his ill health can turn out to be extremely sad for him and for those people with whom he is next,” she said, adding that at the moment There is not a single drug for coronavirus that is effective in 100% of cases.
