The total number of infected in the Russian Federation exceeded 627 thousand people. As for the victims of the epidemic, the country has nearly 9 thousand deaths among patients with COVID-19.
Despite the decrease in the number of cases of coronavirus infection, a new surge in incidence may soon occur in Russia.

In order to avoid a new jump in the incidence rate, according to Schelkanov, the borders should remain closed.
