Professor explained low mortality from coronavirus in Russia


Low mortality rates from COVID-19 in Russia are explained by the fact that in a significant number of infected people the disease is mild. The situation is also affected by the quality training of hospitals. This was announced by Alexander Lukashev - Director of the Institute of Medical Parasitology, Tropical and Vector-borne Diseases named after E.I. Martsin Sechenov University.


This figure can grow in two or three times, but it is already an order of magnitude lower than what was observed in Italy and Spain at the same stage of the spread of the virus. So here we have obvious success

he told the newspaper "News".

Russian experts urge compatriots not to be afraid of an indicator of a sharp increase in the detection of COVID-19. Indeed, asymptomatic cases are also included in the statistics. According to Lukashev, "statistics of severe cases and deaths are of greater importance to us."

We remind you that on April 19, 2020, from the Operational Headquarters of the capital, they stated that 60% of infected Muscovites had no symptoms. Moreover, a week ago, this figure was 40%.

At the same time, the head of the MIPT genomic engineering laboratory Pavel Volchkov hopes that if the authorities' recommendations for self-isolation are followed, then Russia will be able to defeat the coronavirus very soon. According to Volchkov, in a favorable scenario, by the beginning of June, the number of new infections in Russia will tend to zero.

It is in our hands. It is important that we all sit at home

- Volchkov emphasized in an interview RT.

The specialist advised everyone to be at home for at least four weeks. He recalled that the incubation period of coronavirus is two weeks, and one infected person infects ten. He added that closed and poorly ventilated rooms pose the greatest risk of infection. He advised everyone on the street to wear a mask and keep a distance.

Over the last day in Russia, 6060 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in 78 regions (3570 in Moscow). 48 died (28 in Moscow). Has recovered - 234 (84 in Moscow). In total, as of April 19, 2020, 42853 cases of COVID-19 were registered in Russia in 85 regions (24324 in Moscow). 361 died (176 in Moscow). He recovered - 3291 (1763 in Moscow).

    ... the incubation period of the coronavirus is two weeks, and one infected person infects ten.

    Ill patients become infected again. Ie they immunity is not developed to the virus.
    Does this mean that the pandemic will not end before the end of this year?

    Tell me, how can I explain the three-fold increase in mortality from community-acquired pneumonia compared with the same period last year?

      Tests were delivered - there is a virus, there are no dumb tests and no viruses either. Logical and normal, but only until a certain time.
      God grant that it passes without starting.

                  You see, Winnie.
                  If you say something, you need to reinforce your words with exact arguments, otherwise you look like an irresponsible talker. And it is your task to reinforce your words, because this is your statement.

                    I am annoyed by your childish infantilism and a complete lack of independence.

                    At the request of RBC, Rosstat, based on information from the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare, provided a summary of the incidence of community-acquired pneumonia in Moscow in January 2019 and 2020. The increase in the incidence rate was 37% - 6921 cases against 5058. 40% of those infected in January were children and adolescents under 17 years of age. The peak incidence of seasonal infections, as a rule, occurs in January-February.

                      I am almost sure that I’m older than you, and pulling BALABOL by the tongue is a normal position. Watch carefully.
                      April 19, 2020 14:26 - you write:

                      Tell me, how can I explain the three-fold increase in mortality from community-acquired pneumonia compared with the same period last year?

                      Again.

                      a three-fold increase in mortality from community-acquired pneumonia

                      When you were pulled for the language, you finally link May 2, 2020:

                      the incidence of community-acquired pneumonia in Moscow in January 2019 and 2020. The increase in the incidence rate was 37% - 6921 cases against 5058. 40% of those infected in January

                      Again.

                      increased mortality from community-acquired pneumonia

                      Incidence rate

                      In addition, they cited statistics for January, when there were no tests for COVID-19 yet.
                      This is how liberals manipulate facts. And people’s brains are powdered.
                      And yes, these are statistics only for Moscow. In addition, three times - this is 300%.
                      Now, tell me about the infantiles. Go to school.

                        And yes, these are statistics only for Moscow. In addition, three times - this is 300%.

                        If you are not comfortable with a three-fold increase in mortality from community-acquired pneumonia, then maybe ten times will suit you?

                        In St. Petersburg, victims of community-acquired pneumonia are almost 10 times more than those who died from coronavirus
                        According to Alexander Beglov, from March 1 in St. Petersburg, community-acquired pneumonia was diagnosed in 11 people. Of these, 223 died. These patients and deceased are not included in the official statistics on coronavirus, which against this background looks much safer: since the beginning of the epidemic, as of May 694, 11 infected COVID-8485 were detected in St. Petersburg, 19 people died.
                        Previously, an average of 10-20 deaths per month from community-acquired pneumonia were recorded in the city. Now almost 10 times more people have died from her than from the coronavirus.
                        In April, the city health committee released statistics on community-acquired pneumonia. In January 2019, they were detected in 1576 people, in February - in 1830, in March - in 1778. During the same months, 34, 23 and 9 patients died, respectively. At the beginning of 2020, the picture was approximately the same: 1731 patients in January (8 dead), 1777 - in February (12 dead). And then there was a sharp jump. In March of this year, pneumonia was diagnosed in 2716 people (almost a thousand more than usual).

                        Maybe you want to refute this data?

                        This is how liberals manipulate facts. And people’s brains are powdered.

                        I want to remind you that the liberals are trading in the country and are sitting in the Kremlin. The fact that they juggle facts and powder people with brains is without a doubt. Here I completely agree with you. hi

    Then I watched Shevchenko’s video.



    He has pneumonia, but no coronavirus has been detected. Along the way, the tests are not very reliable.

    In Russia, drugs are readily available. Without a prescription, you can buy any medication except drugs and clonidine.
    In Europe and the USA, even vitamins will not be given without a prescription. And to ask a doctor's advice in a neighborly manner - in the USA it is suicide for a doctor.

      What's the point? A friend healed, then for two weeks lay under a dropper.

      In Europe and the USA, even vitamins will not be given without a prescription.

      Who told you this? Plant-based vitamins and medicines are free at any supermarket. There are groups of drugs that are legally only available with a prescription. It is quite normal in order to protect patients from possible health complications and with the law.
      Tell me, where in Russia are the analgesic analogues of morphine on the free market?

      ask a doctor's advice next door

      Depends on the level of neighborhood and the status of the doctor.
      In Russia, there are also, of course, others, such as - "I'm not a gynecologist, of course, but I can see." wassat

    Yes, these scientists can’t drive into their heads that Russia, during its thousand-year existence, has gone through so many all kinds of plague, smallpox, syphilis-trippers, AIDS, swine and chicken flu, SARS, and these coronaviruses, that there’s nothing for it scary. It’s at European weakness - he sneezed, and immediately died, and we are a people familiar to everything, and to any infection.
