In one to two weeks, Russia expects an increase in the number of patients with coronavirus. Such a forecast was made by Ivan Konovalov, associate professor of the department of infectious diseases in children at Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University. According to him, on May holidays people are massively violating the regime of self-isolation, and after the incubation period has passed, a surge in incidence will begin.

As they say "News", the expert expressed fears that the Russians will be guided by the thought that somehow or other everyone will get the coronavirus and will go out into the street. In this case, the disease with severe forms can become widespread. In this case, medical institutions run the risk of not managing the load, especially in the regions.

Ivan Konovalov pointed out that the volume of research on coronavirus in the subjects is much less than in Moscow. Considering that up to 50% of cases of the disease are asymptomatic, this contributes to the spread of a new infection. In some regions, including the Far East, authorities are introducing a strict mask regime in public places to reduce the risk of infection from hidden carriers of the virus.
