Virologist, MD, professor Anatoly Altstein questioned the predictions for the peak coronavirus epidemic in Russia expected next week. He also made assumptions about the completion dates for the distribution of COVID-19.

Anatoly Altstein in an interview RT said that the peak incidence, as well as the timing of the end of the epidemic in Russia, strongly depend on the implementation of preventive measures by citizens. If everyone follows the quarantine regime, self-isolation, hygiene measures, then the expected increase in the incidence may not come next week. 

Also, according to the virologist's forecasts, the epidemic should be over by summer. Most likely, the prerequisites for this will be in the second half of May. 

Meanwhile, the chief infectious disease specialist of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency, Vladimir Nikiforov, previously stated that the peak of the disease will be next week, and the coronavirus epidemic will end only after 10-12 weeks.
