Virologist Altstein said that the coronavirus pandemic could pass in 2022
Chief Researcher of the Gamaleya Research Center Anatoly Altshtein named the terms and conditions for victory over the global coronavirus pandemic. In his opinion, in order to weaken SARS-CoV-2 and its transition to a less aggressive form, with which humanity can live without the conditions of an epidemic, the entire year of 2022 is needed, during which coronavirus restrictions must be carefully observed. He spoke about this in an interview with Lenta.ru.
The fate of the coronavirus largely depends on the person, Altstein said. “This human-coronavirus interaction is highly dependent on how we behave. Will we observe anti-epidemic measures to reduce the spread and multiplication of coronavirus, will we be vaccinated, “the virologist said.

He suggested that a year is the time at which the pandemic can end, and the coronavirus will weaken so much that it will turn into an ordinary disease. “I think that with that level of technology, I’m talking about vaccines and medicines, if we would behave in accordance with the prescriptions of doctors over the next year, then the coronavirus would have outlived itself, went into a form where it would be possible live peacefully. It depends on people, not on the Lord God, not on nature, ”concluded the chief researcher of the Gamaleya Research Center.
Such examples already exist in the history of mankind, he noted. “We had a Spanish woman. After about a couple of years, the virus remained, but it is not at all the same virus in its action. It gives a lethality of 0.1 percent, and before that it killed five percent, that is, the lethality decreased 50 times. Such things happen with viruses, “Altstein said.
According to the virologist, vaccination and revaccination are the way to an early victory over the pandemic. “We need to vaccinate, vaccinate and vaccinate. This will help primarily from the delta. We now do not know where to go from it, “the physician summed up.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to prepare an updated action plan in a week in connection with the emergence of a new strain of coronavirus. According to the head of state, it is necessary to maintain an increased readiness of the healthcare system, including supplies of drugs, oxygen, reserve beds and the most effective treatment protocols for the disease.
