MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. The flu outbreak in Russia will worsen in the second part of January or in February, and has not reached its peak, Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova told reporters.
"The peak is in January-early February. Possibly, the incidence of the disease will grow in the second half of January and in the beginning of February. We were ready for this," Skvortsova said.
As part of preparations for the flu season, an unprecedented number of citizens - more than 50 million people or almost 40% of the country’s population - got vaccinated against the disease. The Health Ministry hopes that the number of difficult cases with severe complications and also the number of deaths from the virus will be significantly lower compared with last year.
