The peak incidence COVID-19 in Russia covered Moscow

Пик заболеваемости COVID-19 в России преодолела только Москва

Moscow and the Moscow region were the only regions which have already managed to overcome the peak incidence of new type of coronavirus. This was announced by the candidate of economic Sciences, expert of the Center for economic research, Aghasi Tavadyan.

“The peak of coronavirus have been only Moscow and the Moscow region. The main reason for this that since the end of April in the capital region significantly increased the number of tests. On the one hand, the increased number of cases, on the other, were identified and isolated cases in the early stages. Increased the percentage of asymptomatic carriers of the virus. In the result, the peak came early, and then began to decline. The increase in the number of test takers and the subsequent isolation of virus carriers resulted in a reduction in the rate of spread of disease” – said the economist.

According to Tavadyan, now in the capital there was a decline in the incidence, and the regions are at their peak or just approaching it.
