The chief pulmonologist of the Russian Ministry of Health, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Avdeev urged Russians to observe the regime of self-isolation. According to him, the plateau has not yet been reached, and the increase in the incidence is due to the ignorance of anti-epidemic norms.

Sergey Avdeev gave an interview to the press service of the Russian Ministry of Health. According to him, the country has not yet reached the peak of the epidemic. This is influenced by the low rates of self-isolation and the use of prophylactic agents among Russians. According to some studies, more than half of the inhabitants do not observe self-isolation.

In addition, the pulmonologist noted, the more citizens violate the regime of self-isolation, the greater the number of diagnosed cases, hospitalizations, transfer of patients to intensive care units, on mechanical ventilation. Hence new lethal cases.

For those who have chronic lung diseases, the doctor recommends continuing the previously prescribed therapy. It is also important to observe the regime of physical activity, at least go through a certain number of steps at home. Sergey Avdeev also supported the mandatory wearing of masks to all citizens without exception.

Earlier, the head of the Federal Biomedical Agency Veronika Skvortsova expected that Russia will be able to reach a plateau by coronavirus until April 22. Infectionist Nikolai Malyshev reported that the peak incidence will be in the summer. In Rospotrebnadzor, the highest number of cases was predicted at the beginning of may.
