The period of isolation in Russia lasted for two incubation periods, during this time, we have significantly reduced the rate of increase of its incidence: first, it grew about 23% in the day today – on 7-8%. If we suspend the isolation mode, go back to the beginning, and if you continue to observe it, the sooner we can return to normal life, but with certain peculiarities, – said Popov. — In Wuhan was the most severe quarantine, was stopped absolutely everything except medical institutions – where it took 1.5-2 incubation period to stop the epidemic. We in two the incubation period was able to suspend growth, and we need a third period. That is, two more weeks, so people can have less contacts”.

From total of 47% of asymptomatic virus, these people identified in the survey contact groups of patients. They are also isolated (the virus is excreted over 14 days) to prevent further infection.

Today in Russia more than 116 thousand patients redeveloped. But almost all of oncostatin continue to work. There is also medical institutions for patients with rheumatic diseases, they remain specialized hospitals. Vascular centers continue to work. You can still receive hemodialysis”.
