In Russia, the proportion of children under 17 who are sick with a new type of coronavirus has increased. Three weeks ago the share was 5%, and today it is 7%. The head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova said this at a briefing.

According to her, now in the country among the diseased there are approximately equal numbers of men and women. Moreover, since May 3, the last total number of cases of COVID-19 registered in Russia is statistically approximately the same - for ten days there is no significant increase in the incidence rate in Russia.

Only 28,4% of patients are referred to hospitals, while the rest have a mild illness, they are treated at home. Asymptomatic carriers are 41% of cases. Moreover, most often people become infected through close contact - 37% became infected in the family or when communicating with friends. The mortality rate in Russia, according to Anna Popova, is 7,6 times lower than in the world as a whole.
