Who said a steady decline in the number of cases of coronavirus in Russia

Across Russia in recent times there has been a steady decline in newly identified cases of coronavirus, said RIA Novosti the representative of the world health organisation Melita Vujnović.

In her words, "the development of every epidemic has its own laws, and in the case of Russia it is necessary to take into account the fact that the country is huge in territory, every region has its own demographic and socio-economic characteristics, which also influence the growth or decline in the number of cases of infection."

"In General, in recent years we have seen a steady decline in newly identified cases across the country, although there are areas (and they change over time), which face more serious problems either from the point of view of the number of new cases, or medical care, or the introduction of an adequate combination of so-called non-medical measures to limit crowds of people if you cannot maintain physical distance from each other," said Vujnović.

As reported earlier in the operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus, the last day in Russia confirmed cases of novel coronavirus infection COVID-19 – 6693 in 84 regions, including actively identified 2019 (30,2%) without clinical manifestations.

World health organization March 11 announced the outbreak of a new coronavirus infection COVID-19 pandemic. According to the latest who data, the world revealed more than 10 million cases of infection, over 499 thousand people died.
