On the topic: The peak of infections with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in Russia is predicted An expert on statistics and modeling at the Center for Economic Research Aghasi Tavadyan told RIA Novosti about three scenarios for the development of events related to coronavirus in Russia. In his opinion, with the most favorable outcome, the incidence rate and deaths will begin to decline in a week, and the most likely scenario: Russia will peak in two to three weeks, in the worst case, the peak will happen in early November.
The expert also noted that he does not see the point in introducing strict isolation measures, since it will not be possible to achieve compliance with them among 80 percent of citizens, and it is this indicator, in his opinion, that is needed for their effectiveness.
