The head of the Federal Biomedical Agency Veronika Skvortsova reported on the prognosis of the peak coronavirus in Russia. According to her, the incidence will increase for another 14 days.

“In the event that we will behave in the same rational manner, and at the same time we will increase the testing volume, then, according to the best forecasting groups, we have 10-14 days before reaching a plateau with this infection,” said Veronika Skvortsova on the air of the TV channel Russia-24.

She noted that after this, for several days, approximately until the first decade of June, a plateau will hold on (when the situation reaches a peak and approximately the same number of newly ill people add each next day), and then the indicators will begin to decline. The process of reducing the number of cases, according to Veronika Skvortsova, will take as much time as it took to increase this indicator. However, this will happen if the process development scenario does not change.

According to her, while the epidemic process in Russia is developing according to one of the most favorable scenarios. She attributes this to the fact that in the country they took leading measures, drawing on the experience of other countries: they introduced quarantine measures and isolated people from risk groups.

Veronika Skvortsova said that Russia was able to achieve a smoother sinusoid in the development of infection due to restrictive measures, which other countries called for. The increase in the number of patients, according to her, is 18-20%.
