Survey by RNC Pharma and Doktor Na Rabote (Doctor at Work): 63% of Doctors Believe that Incidence of COVID-19 in Russia will not Begin Decreasing until Summer
Only 7% of doctors think that the incidence of coronavirus infection in Russia will start declining as early as mid-May, according to an online survey by the RNC Pharma analyst company and the Doktor Na Rabote (Doctor at Work) social media service for doctors.
Most of the respondents (33%) assume that the situation will not stabilize until late May or early June, followed by 30% who do not consider it possible until July. It is noteworthy that, despite significant differences in the number of cases in different regions, the answers did not have statistical significant differences in terms of geography.
Only 12% of the respondents lean towards the most negative scenario when the pandemic does not stop until September. A few doctors, however, wrote in the “other” section that the incidence rate could continue “until winter” or that epidemic outbreaks could develop in waves over the next 2 years.
17% of the doctors are sure that the end of the epidemic will be “administrative in nature” and will occur “whenever the government wishes.”
