The situation with the coronavirus is gradually stabilizing in Russia, said Antonina Ploskireva, the deputy director of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology under Rospotrebnadzor.


There are several federal subjects where a steady tendency towards stabilization can be observed, Ploskireva noted.

The specialist said that COVID-19 is a new infection and all the features of the course of the epidemiological process are still unknown. Therefore, there are difficulties in predicting the situation. At the same time, it is impossible to say definitively and reasonably when to expect a decline in the incidence rate.

Ploskireva stressed that the situation depends on each person - it is necessary to follow all the recommendations, unite and defeat the infection, RIA Novosti reports.

The US company Moderna has announced that it has sent a request to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use of the coronavirus vaccine, NEWS.ru reported earlier.
