A new coronavirus may appear in Russia in mid-February of this year. This follows from the presentation of the professor of the deputy director of FSBI “NIIC FPI” of the Ministry of Health Vladimir Chulanov.

According to the profile publication Farmvestnik, according to the professor, the risk of the appearance of the virus in Russia is estimated as high, since it is transmitted by airborne droplets, the growth rate of the incidence is high, and cases of the disease are recorded in the provinces bordering the Primorsky and Khabarovsk territories, the Jewish Autonomy and the Amur Region.

However, despite the high risk of the virus entering the territory of Russia, experts assess the threat of its spread as low. The country has already strengthened sanitary-quarantine control at the borders, developed a set of reagents for detecting the virus, and is developing a vaccine. By mid-February, it is planned to create a quick test, the Center for Strategic Planning of the Russian Ministry of Health will be engaged in its development.

Now in the world more than 4,5 thousand people are infected, more than 100 people have died. Li Sinwan, a spokesman for the State Health Committee of the PRC, said that a new type of coronavirus can enter the human body through the mucous membrane of the eyes, and infection can occur from a distance of two meters.

According to Chinese media reports, a research group from Hong Kong has developed a vaccine against coronavirus. However, her animal testing can take months, and clinical trials in humans can take one year.
