Russia is preparing to overtake Italy in the growth of the number of infected with the coronavirus COVID-19

The spread of coronavirus in Russia is approaching Italy.

According to statistics from the World Health Organization and the Russian headquarters for the fight against coronavirus, the situation in the country remains such that the number of newly infected with coronavirus quickly approaches the indicators of Italy, and judging by statistics, by the beginning of next week, these figures may be equal.

According to the data of the operational headquarters, 1175 new cases of coronavirus infection were detected in Russia the day before, while in Italy this figure is 2100 people, which in turn suggests that, while maintaining current trends, within the next 3-4 days coronavirus in Russia may outstrip the European state in terms of its spread, which was considered a few days ago the most affected by COVID-19.

“If in most countries there is already a decrease in the number of new people infected with a new type of coronavirus, in Russia this figure continues to grow actively, despite the urgent measures. Obviously, if the situation continues to deteriorate, the country can indeed introduce an emergency regime and declare a strict quarantine, however, at the moment, this is not necessary ", - the expert marks.

On the other hand, experts draw attention to the fact that today the mortality from coronavirus in Russia remains at an extremely low level, leaving less than one percent, while in Italy this figure is 10-12 times higher.

In Italy, at the peak it was +6600 per day, and now it is +3800 per day. Where did the 2100 come from?
