Russia to reach herd immunity by end of year - report

Russia is likely to reach herd immunity to COVID-19 sooner than it was previously anticipated, the TASS reported on Saturday, citing an expert in immunology that the outlet consulted.

The immunologist said that many official estimates don't take into account people who have contracted COVID and experienced no symptoms, claiming that there are "quite a few" of those cases.

If there are no new virus mutations that would overcome the vaccines' protective effect, "everything should be over by the end of the year," the outlet cited the source.
