A very small percentage of Russians are immune to the SARS-CV-2 coronavirus. On May 2, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova told about this on the air of “Russia 1”.
According to her, in January, this particular coronavirus was not present in Russia. “This is absolutely proven today by the fact that our fellow citizens have immunity in a very small proportion of the entire population,” said the chief sanitary doctor of the Russian Federation.
As she added, in immunology, it is known that from 5 to 10% in any population do not produce antibodies either after the disease or after the vaccine.
“After the disease is not so often, but at the same time, we know that cases of repeated measles are registered,” she gave an example.
On the eve of Anna Popova explained that the refusal of restrictive measures for coronavirus will be gradual and depend on the epidemiological situation in the regions. It supported the regions that introduced the mask mode.
An outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection was first detected in Wuhan, China, in late December.
In total, as of may 2, 124,054 cases of coronavirus were registered in Russia in 85 regions. 1222 patients died and 15,013 people recovered.
