COVID-19 Should Become Less Active in April-May: Russian Expert

BBC

Seasonal changes should affect the activity of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Nikolay Briko, head of the First Moscow State Medical University’s Epidemiology and Evidence-Based Medicine Department and Russian Health Ministry’s chief non-resident epidemiologist, stated on Monday. He added that the virus should become less active by April-May, TASS reports. 

"I think that its activity should become lower with the change of season, in any case. In April-May, the activity of the coronavirus should drop significantly," he said during a live transmission of the conference held on the "Future of Russia. National Projects" portal operated by TASS.

Briko noted that the predictions claiming that the new infection will affect the majority of the world’s population are unlikely. "We have only seen this in the Middle Ages, when the infection was completely out of control. Right now, the measures taken by practically all states help contain it, and there won’t be such a spread of this infection," the expert explained.
