For a number of indicators, it was in the region of 50-60%, then 30%, in the last week it was 15%.
This week, I hope, it will not be longer, ”the mayor said on the air of the Russia 1 TV channel.
According to him, the current situation gives hope that the peak incidence and plateau are approaching.
The mayor also pointed out that the introduction of new restrictive measures in the city is not necessary.

Sobyanin noted that not a single sector of the economy is currently closed.

The Rospotrebnadzor suggested that the decline in the incidence of coronavirus infection in Russia will occur in February-March 2021.
As the deputy director for scientific work of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, Alexander Gorelov, said, usually from the beginning of the rise in the incidence rate, the maximum growth is expected for 28 days, which is equivalent to two incubation periods.
Gorelov indicated that at this time "stabilization of the process" will come, but the virus "will still spread."
“After that, there will be a steady decline, as we saw in the spring after May 11.
Most likely, this is February-March, when we will enter the decline phase, ”the scientist said.
