The head of the Rusnano Criminal Code, Anatoly Chubais, said that in the past few days, Russia could have reached a plateau for the spread of coronavirus infection. He shared this opinion in an interview with Forbes.
“If this is so, if it is confirmed within the next five to seven days, it means that the duration of the plateau, as was said, from three weeks to one and a half months, is a heavy plateau,” Chubais said. According to him, based on such calculations, the number of cases of infection should decline in mid-June.
The head of the corporation added that the demand for test systems will not fall either during the plateau or after it. Currently, Chubais said, Rusnano is in the final stages of two test systems. One of them is needed for analysis in the laboratory, and the other for conducting tests for a limited time in crowded places.
According to the chairman of the board, the volume of antibodies to the virus among residents of Russia will continue to be gradually recruited. However, its rapid accumulation, caused by a sharp peak in incidence, is not observed in the country. In this case, the health system would be overloaded. “We did not hit him [в пик]so thank god. They managed to avoid a catastrophic situation, ”summed up Chubais. The main measures were the timely closure of borders with China and the introduction of sanitary restrictions in Moscow, the head of the company said.
Earlier it was reported that scientists modeled two models of the peak distribution of COVID-19 in Russia. According to the positive model, in some regions the maximum value has already been achieved: this applies, in particular, to Moscow and the Moscow region. According to the pessimistic scenario, the capital will peak only on May 26.
