Onishchenko explained the different incidence rates of COVID in the Russian Federation and in the USA

Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Medical Sciences Gennady Onishchenko commented on the lower rates of COVID incidence in Russia compared to data from the United States. In his opinion, these figures were influenced by the fact that in Russia the New Year holidays have just ended and people are just going to work, while in Western countries the celebration of Christmas has long been over.

“We have a head start, we just went to work, a timely order was given – to develop measures,” – reports RIA News words of Onishchenko.

At the same time, he recalled the importance of vaccination.

“If we now make it so that we do not have a collective immunity of 63%, but we bring it to at least 70%, convincing the nation to vaccinate and revaccinate, then this will reduce,” he stressed.
