Effective fight against the spread of coronavirus
Earlier, Vladimir Putin noted the success of Russia in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. The head of state noted that the Russian Federation has managed to effectively mobilize resources.
“There was a calculation that we would not be able to do anything with this coronavirus at all, at first we were counting on it. We proceeded from the fact that we are worthless, and there is no way to call us, and we cannot do anything. But we were able to. And better than other countries, ”the president said during a meeting with heads of Russian media.
According to him, the most objective indicator is the number of cases per 100 thousand people. He noted that in Russia this figure is 12 people.
Meanwhile, mass vaccination against coronavirus continues in Russia. According to the estimates of the developer of the first vaccine against COVID-19 – the center. Gamaleas – about 2 million people have already been vaccinated in Russia.
Experts believe that after the second phase of vaccination, Russians can plan a vacation. This was stated by Andrey Tyazhelnikov, the chief freelance specialist in primary health care for the adult population of the Moscow Department of Health.
According to him, the vaccine protects a person from infection with coronavirus and, among other things, makes travel and other aspects of life safer.
“After the second phase of vaccination, you can plan a vacation. Vaccination does not imply travel restrictions. Vaccination does not in any way restrict swimming in the sea and sunbathing. But, regardless of vaccination, everything is fine in moderation. Overheating in the sun is not useful to anyone and is dangerous, “RIA Novosti quotes the physician.
At the same time, Tyazhelnikov noted that if a person was sick with a coronavirus infection, but fully recovered and feels good, then he can lead a familiar lifestyle, which includes a vacation trip.
However, experts believe that people who have had an asymptomatic coronavirus may become reinfected six months later due to insufficiently stable immunity. This opinion was expressed by the chief physician of the Medical Center “Leader of Medicine” Evgeny Timakov.
According to him, people who have had a coronavirus infection, according to scientific data, eight months after the illness, in most cases, remain immune to the coronavirus.
“If a person was sick not in an asymptomatic form, it is natural that there were clinical signs of the disease. If a person was asymptomatic, then in half a year he, unfortunately, can get the coronavirus again with a certain viral load, “Timakov said on the air of Vesti FM. His words are quoted by TASS.
Along with this, the physician noted that according to the data available to him, re-infection proceeds in a milder form compared to the initial case.
In addition, Timakov suggested that Russians who have not had the coronavirus, who believe that they are not susceptible to the virus, could contract a new strain of infection in the spring. According to him, earlier, in order to get infected, it was necessary to stay near the source of infection for a long time. But in this case, it was about the first version of the virus, which is no longer in circulation, the doctor said.
“There are completely different subspecies circulating, and this British virus will still come to us. People who have not yet been ill and believe that they are not susceptible to coronavirus, they will need a lower viral load of the new strain, and they will just get sick in the spring, ”Timakov believes.
He added that the following mutations will alleviate the symptoms of the disease, but the virus will be easier to transmit.
He also suggested that a rise in the incidence could be expected in the spring, as “people relaxed” and began to disregard wearing masks. Note that earlier in Rospotrebnadzor reminded of maintaining the requirement to wear masks.
As noted by the head of the department, Anna Popova, the situation can only be stabilized if all the already mandatory measures are strictly followed.
“You need to wear masks, this requirement is not canceled and until it is canceled – this is so in today’s period,” she concluded.
