новая волна коронавируса

Over the past month, the incidence of COVID-19 in Russia has increased more than 7 times. For the third day in a row, the number of people sickened by COVID per day exceeded 30,000 in Russia. Among cities, Moscow is the leader in the number of cases per day.

Rospotrebnadzor has not yet introduced restrictive measures. However, the head of the Ministry of Health Mikhail Murashko recommended to the vulnerable groups of population to wear masks in public places.

Some regions have already returned to compulsory masks.Also a mask regime will be introduced at the government building from August 22 and the number of Cabinet trips will be reduced.

Medics recommend taking preventive measures to protect against COVID-19 in advance. One of the additional protective measures is a TOR device, an innovative device for electromagnetic suppression of  SARS-CoV-2 virus. TOR is patented and registered as a medical device. Individual version of the device — sensor TOR-M, made in the form of a body accessory, will protect against any known strain of coronavirus.

What figures of morbidity are expected in the new wave?

According to doctors, the disease rate will peak in September.

Kirill Masliyev, candidate of medical sciences, predicts:

The peculiarity of the wave is that we are faced with quite a contagious strain. It spreads quite lightning-fast and involves more and more people, they fall ill for the second time, someone for the third time.

In September, when the children return from vacation and go to school, we expect an additional increase in the number of those infected. I think the first peak will be in late August, around the 20th, and the second peak will probably come in the 10th of September. About 80% of all the strain populations are BA.4, BA.5 is a South African strain that was reported in January and February in South Africa and then spread around the world.

infected has gone from 2% to 23% in one month. Each time the disease will take a milder form, but more people will become infected. At the same time, there is still a certain collective immunity, which will not allow to reach such peak values, which we have observed — 200 thousand daily. The incidence will be in the region of 40-50 thousand.

How is the new strain of coronavirus tolerated?

There is a new strain of COVID-19 in Russia — «deltacron,» which is a hybrid of «omicron» and «delta» strains.

The first cases were detected by laboratories in St. Petersburg. To date, a small number of cases of «deltacron» infection have been confirmed, which did not require hospitalization.

Specialists note that «deltacron» does not occur for the first time. Infection with this hybrid strain has been previously recorded in Europe and the USA.
