“the flu symptoms are clearly designed and described. If you see that you have a sharp rise in temperature to 40 degrees, and there are all other symptoms such as weakness, body aches — it’s probably the flu,” – said the doctor.

He stressed that when infected with coronavirus symptoms include loss of taste and smell. Leaking COVID-19 maybe different people have different illness to the end is still not studied by scientists.

A significant jump in the incidence of the fall of the Russian experts do not expect. Chief infectionist of the Ministry of health Vladimir closets stated earlier, the wave of infection can occur in schools and universities – when they formed new groups and classes.

Vaccine COVID-19 is now being tested. The Russians themselves can decide to do them vaccinated or not, said Minister of health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko. The first drug from coronavirus infection needs to medics he added.
