As noted by Rossiyskaya Gazeta , American scientists at Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of California accuse young people of spreading the coronavirus. According to experts, active social contacts in this population group threaten with an increase in morbidity. It is adolescents who play the greatest role in the transmission of COVID-19, the report of specialists showed. According to the analysis, two thirds of cases are associated with the transmission of the virus through contact with other people.
As for the situation in Russia, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vitaly Zverev , head of the Department of Microbiology, Virology and Immunology at Sechenov University, makes the If, as they say, from 30 to 40% of our population have antibodies, then it seems that we will cope with the pandemic, nothing bad will happen. “
The increase in incidence rates will continue until 70% of Russians acquire immunity. The expert is confident that the current rise in the incidence was expected and is not considered critical. “The virus hasn’t gone anywhere. There will be a rise. I think in January-February it will decline due to weather conditions. There is nothing to expect big changes. Although now the movement with abroad is limited, but it is, the virus will be brought from there, then from here, in the regions there is a different situation, “Zverev says.
At the same time, the specialist opposes the tightening of restrictions. Experience has shown that people who are in isolation do not become healthier, chronic people aggravate their illnesses, and cannot receive medical care on time. Somewhere the number of visits to doctors after the removal of measures exceeded the usual figures by 100%, this was noted in all countries. We must see how much we will lose from the coronavirus, and how much from other restrictive measures. “
