According to Murashko, at the moment in Russia the proportion of people who have immunity to infection is “not bad.” “But this is still not enough to eliminate. Our task is elimination, ”he stressed.
Earlier, Murashko said that there is no third wave of coronavirus in the country. According to him, the incidence of COVID-19 in the country as a whole is decreasing, it is just that different regions are coming out of the pandemic in different ways.
