Golikova: collective immunity to COVID may appear in August
Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that the collective immunity to coronavirus in Russians may form in August. This will happen if 60% of the population is vaccinated.
As the TASSTatyana Golikova is confident that with an increase in the rate of vaccination, it will be possible to achieve mass immunity earlier.
“Most likely it will be,” she said.
She clarified that compliance with restrictive measures will continue until collective immunity is achieved in Russia. According to the WHO, less than 10% of the world's population has antibodies to coronavirus, so vaccination is the only way to achieve massive immunity.
Earlier, the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation called conditions for the formation of herd immunity to the coronavirus. The head of the ministry, Mikhail Murashko, believes that such an indicator can be achieved in the first half of 2021. He specified that 68,6 million people must be vaccinated for this. Immunity will arise when 60% of Russians are vaccinated.
In Russia, from January 18, began mass vaccination from the coronavirus. Anyone can get vaccinated free of charge and voluntarily.
