More manifested decline in COVID cases in Russia expected by mid-December, expert says

Evgeny Timakov pointed out that stabilization process will take about a month

MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. A more expressed drop in COVID-19 cases in Russia can be seen in mid-December if the population follows precautionary measures, infection disease specialist Yevgeny Timakov told TASS.

"If everything proceeds as it is, then we will see the more expressed drop in the disease rate. Stabilization process will take about a month, followed by the decline in the disease rate if there is control over infections sources at least in terms of wearing masks. Then everything will be normal and we will celebrate the New Year smoothly," the expert said.

Restrictions will remain but they will not interfere with full-fledged holidays in Russia, Timakov added.
