Russia may reach a plateau in the incidence of coronavirus by May. This was stated by the head of the Federal Biomedical Agency (FMBA) Veronika Skvortsova, referring to the forecast of analysts and mathematicians of the department.

In a programme "Posner" Skvortsova said that, judging by the situation in the regions, Russia is not far from the peak. However, the head of the FMBA was at a loss to answer how long this peak would last. According to her, the new coronavirus is slightly more contagious than the flu virus, but less contagious than measles or chicken pox.

According to her, the number of severe forms of the disease in the country has stopped, but the overall increase continues. 30% of the disease are mild forms that occur like a normal SARS. The average age of patients with coronavirus is 44-47 years, while in severe form the disease occurs in people older than 70 years and in patients who have concomitant diseases.

Earlier, Veronika Skvortsova said that the incidence will increase until May, until the first decade of June the plateau will last, and then the indicators will begin to decline. In Rospotrebnadzor I predict that peak incidence coronavirus in Russia will occur in early May, subject to all preventive measures. After that, the country will reach a plateau.
