The statement of the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin formed collective immunity to coronavirus in 60% of Muscovites is a hypothesis. This was stated by the virologist nits of epidemiology and Microbiology named after N. F. Gamalei Anatoly Altstein.

According to him, it is impossible to treat approval Sobyanin as to statistics, we are talking about assumptions, according to RBC.

Director of the Institute of health Economics HSE Larisa Popovich, too, questioned the accuracy of numbers, called Sobyanin. She suggested that the mayor extrapolated data, which were obtained on a limited number of people involved in the study.

Rather, it’s about the fact that 60 percent of tested have this immunity. However, from what I’ve seen, the lab talking about 20 percent, — said Popovich.

The expert added that there is a rather high probability of acquisition by Muscovites immunity to infection. However, more precise figures can show a study of citizens for neutralizing antibodies.

Earlier reported that owners of collective immunity to the coronavirus in Moscow are already 60% of the residents, said the mayor Sergey Sobyanin. According to him, the same figure recorded in new York. In the US the process took place over a month, and health care did not cope with the load, but we smoothed peak, stretched the process for three months, said Sobyanin.
