In Russia, 285 foci of the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 were recorded. At the same time, the largest number of people infected due to their presence was recorded in the republics of Yakutia and Komi, as well as in the Murmansk region. Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova announced this at a meeting on the sanitary and epidemiological situation in the country. 

The Deputy Prime Minister said that the main share of the foci of the disease is occupied by medical organizations, but there are also stationary social service organizations where outbreaks of COVID-19 have occurred. According to her, the development of the disease in the regions has a different course. For example, in Yakutia, the number of cases is due to the fact that there are quite serious foci of coronavirus.

According to Tatyana Golikova, in general, the situation with the spread of coronavirus in the regions lags behind Moscow by two to three weeks, but there is already a noticeable acceleration in the growth rate of the number of infected. She added that in Russia, the infection among the elderly is less than in the world: now the average age of patients with COVID-19 is 47,9 years for women and 44,7 years for men. The proportion of sick citizens over 65 years old is 15,5%.

According to the latest data, more than 47 thousand cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Russia. Vladimir Putin stated that the peak of the pandemic in the country has not yet been passed and the situation remains difficult.
