The number of coronavirus patients remains high in Moscow, the city’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said at a meeting of the coronavirus response council on Wednesday, APA reports citing TASS.
"Increasing hospitalizations create a burden on the healthcare system, and on the other hand, this leads to a high death rate. We can see that it is much higher in May than in April," he pointed out. "The April wave has brought critical patients in hospitals," Sobyanin added.
"When we plan our next steps, we need to realize that the infection level is still high," the Moscow mayor emphasized.
