The incidence of coronavirus in Russia will increase in the near future. This was announced by the Deputy Director for Clinical and Analytical Work of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, Professor Natalya Pshenichnaya, reports “RIA News”.

This is due to the fact that the Russian regions are at different stages of the epidemic rise in the incidence, she noted. In addition, a rapid increase in the number of cases will occur due to the spread of the omicron variant in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
