Russia will not face any particular shocks due to the spread of the coronavirus in the near future. Such a statement on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) was made by the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova.
“I suppose that in the near future there will be no special shocks,” RIA Novosti quotes her.
The coronavirus is still dangerous and continues to exist among people, Popova reminded. This is evidenced by daily statistics on sick and hospitalized patients.
The day before, the head of Rospotrebnadzor announced the first case in the Russian Federation of infection with a new strain of coronavirus “Omicron” BA.5. According to her, there is nothing wrong with that.
