Biologist Told How to Stop the Coronavirus Epidemic in Russia
OREANDA-NEWS. Vaccination of 80% of the population could stop the epidemic of the new coronavirus in Russia, said RIA Novosti, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Head of the Laboratory of Bionanotechnology, Microbiology and Virology of Novosibirsk State University (NSU), Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Netesov.
"When you know that 60% are vaccinated in Great Britain, and there the population is about 60 million, then you will understand that we are among the most backward countries. Mongolia looks much better than us - there, at 40%, it has already been vaccinated ... but it should be 80 % to stop the epidemic, "Netesov said.
He noted that the situation with an increase in the incidence of coronavirus in Russia can only be corrected by the consciousness of people and the pace of vaccination.
The third wave of the new coronavirus suggests that it is still "overtaking" all measures taken in Russia to counter the epidemic, says Sergei Netesov, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Head of the Laboratory of Bionanotechnology, Microbiology and Virology at Novosibirsk State University (NSU), Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Netesov.
One more expert, Denis Protsenko, the chief physician of the hospital No. 40 in Kommunarka, expects that there will be no next wave of coronavirus in Russia.
“I hope that there will be no next wave, because vaccination will show itself,” he said on the YouTube channel “Soloviev Live”.
