As Vasily Akimkin said on the air of Channel One, if the peak incidence falls in mid-May, the rate of spread of the infection should decline by June.
According to the expert, restrictive measures - self-isolation mode, social distance, prevention - greatly affect the decrease in the growth rate of infection. “Today we see the real importance of the social factor in the dispersal of people, if possible, the absence of contact,” Akimkin emphasized.
The professor notes that a natural factor can also affect the reduction in the spread of coronavirus. "Natural insolation is sunlight, ultraviolet, which has a detrimental effect on any microorganism," he concluded.
As of April 30, 7,099 new cases were confirmed in Russia - a record increase since the beginning of the epidemic. A total of 106 498 cases were registered, 11 619 people recovered, 1073 died.
