ST PETERSBURG, January 28. /TASS/. Influenza's spread slowed across Russia over the past week, health ministry researchers said on Thursday.
The pace of infection fell from a previous reading of 100% growth to a new level of 52%, figures show, revealing that European Russia's epidemic threshold exceeds 50%, topping a nationwide 32%
"Flu morbidity is at an average level," the researchers' website reported.
Health ministry data shows swine flu as most widespread in Russia, officially known as influenza virus A/H1N1. Numerous fatal cases have been registered nationwide during the outbreak.
Swine flu is the name commonly used for influenza caused by the relatively new strain, virus A, responsible for the influenza pandemic in 2009.
Medical evidence proves it to be contagious, spreading the same way as seasonal flu. The most serious complication is pneumonia, leading to fatalities.
