Almost 50% of infected Russians carry COVID-19 asymptomatically - Popova
According to the head of the department Anna Popova, such data were obtained during the testing of citizens for coronavirus.
“45% are asymptomatic, possibly more, now this is the subject of epidemiological studies. In different countries, including the Russian Federation, scientists do this - they determine what the specific weight is. And it is immunological studies that will allow us to see them more clearly and give an answer to this question, "RIA Novosti quotes Popova.
The head of Rospotrebnadzor also emphasized that asymptomatic patients are found with any infection, but there are always fewer patients with pronounced symptoms.
“Everything that we see, as epidemiologists say, is just the tip of the iceberg, all the rest are not severe forms that do not require a visit to a doctor,” Popova says.
The head of the department also announced a population study of the population for antibodies to coronavirus, noting that it will be conducted no earlier than 7 weeks after the peak of the epidemic. This is how long it takes to reveal the immune response after recovery. However, work on organizing mass testing in different subjects of the federation is already underway, Popova stressed.
According to the headquarters for coronavirus, today Russia has a record for the number of deaths from coronavirus per day - 150 people. In total, more than 3.2 thousand people have died from the beginning of the outbreak in Russia from COVID-19, the total number of infected exceeds 326.4 thousand.
