Director of the Gamaleya Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology Alexander Gintsburg told the Russians that despite the decline in the incidence of COVID-19, mortality rates are growing. His words convey RIA News.
The expert noted that the decline in incidence does not mean that there is no danger. “There is also such an indicator as mortality. Unfortunately, it is growing… The terrible danger remains, we must continue to be vaccinated,” he warned.
Gunzburg also added that the incidence rates are declining due to the fact that people began to carry the coronavirus more often “on their feet”. In addition, many have been vaccinated. He emphasized that people at risk are at the greatest risk, since omicron is as dangerous as previous strains.
Earlier, the head of the cell proliferation laboratory at the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology, virologist, Professor Petr Chumakov said that coronavirus infection in people with chronic kidney disease can lead to irreparable consequences. So, at risk are people with kidney stones or polycystic disease.
