Current COVID wave in Russia to last till mid-November - expert

Russia is likely to continue to report high numbers of new coronavirus infections until mid-November, an expert told TASS.

"The coronavirus waves last four, six, eight weeks. I assume that the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 will stop by mid-November, but at that moment the rates will continue to be high," Andrey Isaev, general director of Russia's Scientific Center for Molecular Genetic Research stated and added a decline in new cases is expected in December, but will also depend on restrictive measures and weather conditions.

On Saturday, Russia reported a record rise in both daily cases and deaths from COVID-19 for the fifth consecutive day. Earlier in the week, President Vladimir Putin declared a paid non-working period between October 30 and November 7 in order to curb the spread of the disease.
