Immunologist Bolibok: the number of asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 has significantly decreased in the Russian Federation that in the Russian Federation the number of asymptomatic carriers of coronavirus has significantly decreased during the last wave of infection.
In my opinion, the number of asymptomatic patients has decreased due to the fact that there are more patients with symptoms. That is, there are more people who feel unwell and turn to doctors for medical services, we can see this on the graphs. This is due to the fact that the delta strain of coronavirus is more aggressive

The specialist noted that this COVID-19 strain in Russia is not only more quickly transmitted from person to person. Moreover, it spreads faster from cell to cell inside a person. Therefore, the doctor explained, the immune system does not have time to ward off the infection, and more people experience symptoms.
In addition, against the background of the selfishness of some Russians, statistics take into account far from all cases of COVID-19, the immunologist said. So, some asymptomatic carriers of coronavirus do not go to medical institutions, continue to lead an active lifestyle, spreading the infection.
The doctor also believes that people who were previously convinced that they get sick with COVID-19 easily do not go to doctors. In his opinion, this category of patients does not want to wait for a doctor to receive a prescription for self-isolation, and so on.
Such selfishness leads to the fact that these people are not examined and not taken into account in statistics, but they go and spread the infection

Bolibok believes that the asymptomatic course of coronavirus is the least dangerous option for the infected. At the same time, vaccination increases a person's chances of such a development of events, and most importantly – sharply reduces the risk of infection.

How to convince them? Signs of asymptomatic course of coronavirus
According to the infectious disease doctor Yevgeny Timakov, the asymptomatic course of the coronavirus can be recognized by a number of signs. Symptoms may include sore throat in the morning, mild runny nose, sneezing, and fatigue. According to the specialist, there is no asymptomatic coronavirus, there are only unrecognized symptoms.
Timakov noted that in order to identify the infection on his own, it is necessary to compare the symptoms that appear with the usual state. It is important to determine how bad your throat is or how much your nose is.
An asymptomatic carrier of COVID-19 is not a super-distributor of infection, it is dangerous only with close contact, Timakov said. “At first, a person's disease may be asymptomatic and low-symptom, and a week later the patient may be hospitalized in a serious condition,” he stressed.
A new rise
Earlier in November, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova warned that the Russians would not a new rise in the incidence of coronavirus will be avoided. However, in her opinion, other states have managed to prevent the rise in the incidence of coronavirus.
