A third wave of coronavirus can hit Russia in late April or early May, leading researcher of the Gamaleya Center Fyodor Lisitsin believes.

"If expect it at all, a third wave can be expected in late April or early May and it will last at least one or two months," he told the Rossiya-24 TV channel Tuesday.

At the same time, the researcher underlined that 70% of the Russian population, the number vital to create herd immunity, can be vaccinated by June-July if there are no negative factors affecting the pace of the inoculation campaign.

Earlier, Lisitsin supposed that a third wave can emerge in Russia in late March or early April.
