“In the arsenal of treatment, not only 6 temporary recommendations of the Ministry of Health have appeared, but also our own experience gained during the work. And most importantly, enough information has appeared, on the basis of which it is already possible to draw at least some conclusions,”the doctor writes.
Vechorko also posted an infographic with data on the treated patients. From these data, it follows that the number of hospitalized patients really began to decline: as of April 27, 1103 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 were in the hospital; by April 25, their number dropped to 718.
The decrease in the incidence rate is also evidenced by the data of the headquarters: 8,338 over the last day throughout Russia, two weeks ago the number of new cases of infection exceeded 9,200 people. At the same time, the number of deaths is growing: 161 people over the past day.
Immunologist Vladimir Bolibok believes that the death toll will only increase:
“The operational data on the dead, for example, for yesterday, must be compared with the operational data of the sick three or four weeks ago, because people were hospitalized and, unfortunately, it was not possible to save them. But this did not happen on the same day when they were hospitalized, but two or three, and some even four weeks later. Therefore, as we have a decrease in the number of newly diagnosed cases, our mortality relative to these figures will grow. Mortality, in general, is determined by completed cases. And the finished cases will be only when our epidemic goes down to such numbers as one or two people a day, that is, less than 100 for the whole country, "Kommersant quotes the doctor.
