“the Figures give grounds for cautious optimism,” – said the head of government. In the last week in the whole country the increase in the incidence of the day does not exceed 2.3 percent, and in some regions and 2 percent. This dynamic allowed the 19 subjects of the Federation to begin a gradual abolition of quarantine restrictions. 25 regions are ready and planning on such actions.

In the short term, the government and regional authorities were able to organize the country’s health care system for patients with coronavirus. “As a result we have established a significant reserve for treatment of infectious patients. Just today, there are 180 thousand patients of this profile,” – said Mishustin.

This margin, he says, allows health care providers to gradually return to normal work: for planned hospitalization and treatment of patients with other diseases. The Prime Minister asked the Ministry of health to take under special control the restoration of this work, including in those medical institutions that have been redeveloped to combat coronavirus.

“we will continue to monitor the situation with the spread of the coronavirus. I stress that we must be prepared for any eventuality,” said Mikhail Mishustin.
