Russian healthcare system is definitely ready for a possible growth in coronavirus infections but so far only an insignificant increase is observed in some regions, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday, APA reports citing TASS.

"We indeed observe an insignificant growth in some regions, this is completely natural because many people returned from trips, the academic activity has begun," the Kremlin representative said.

He emphasized that this is not a "dramatic growth," however, "the country’s entire healthcare system is on high "coronavirus" alert." "And this already changes the situation, not the way it was in the beginning of the pandemic," he added, pointing out that the country’s medical system is "definitely [ready] for the possible growth in the number of infections."
