Russia is not expected to see a usual rise in respiratory infections this autumn, and although the number of coronavirus cases could increase, the authorities are taking enough preventive measures, experts said on Thursday, APA reports citing TASS.

According to doctors, during that period the epidemiological situation is not going to seriously deteriorate.

Earlier, the World Health Organization warned about the new wave of coronavirus cases in Europe. After several restrictions were lifted some countries again saw a rise in coronavirus cases and this could trigger a surge of COVID-19 infections, which could spark a healthcare system’s crisis in Europe.

According to professor and specialist in infectious diseases Nikolai Malyshev, in various regions the situation could develop in different ways. "In Russia there are still various restrictions in many regions. Moscow was the first to introduce and end them but the others failed to keep up with it. The regions started doing this later and that’s why they are ending them later. So, the situation in our entire huge motherland is different everywhere," the expert noted.
