Infectionist Evgeny Timakov believes that an increase in the incidence of coronavirus in Russia should be expected in mid-April. He stated this on Tuesday, February 23, on the air of the TV channel “Moscow-24“.
According to the specialist, the surge in the incidence could be strong if the Russians do not adhere to the recommendations for combating COVID-19.
Timakov also did not rule out that the British strain of coronavirus infection will come to Russia by the same time.
In addition, according to Timakov, Russians will need to observe the norms of social distance and use personal protective equipment until the beginning of summer.
“We need to hold out, in fact, until the beginning of June – the middle zone of Russia, I mean. Regions where the heat is already coming and the sun has already come out – until the beginning of May, ”the doctor explained.
