MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Russia’s healthcare system is ready to counter coronavirus, the country’s Health Minister Veronika Skvorstsova stressed on Monday.
The threat that the virus like many other diseases could possibly spread to Russia exists, the minister said, adding that the country's healthcare system "is ready" for this.
If this disease is cured in a right way, then the lethal level here is no higher than 10% "We have developed a method of handling these patients, their diagnostics and treatment," she said.
Russia’s airports have enhanced sanitary control over passengers arriving from a number of Asian countries amid the coronavirus epidemics, Russia’s consumer rights watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, said in early June.
In South Korea, the virus has already killed 16 people and infected around 150. South Korea became the second country in the world for the number of MERS cases after Saudi Arabia.
Most MERS-CoV patients develop severe acute respiratory illness, including fever, cough, and trouble breathing. About three or four out of every 10 MERS patients die. MERS-CoV is spread through close contact.
