The spread of Covid-19 in Russia today, on May 6, 2021, dropped to a minimum since March 12 (0.89 points), which follows from TASS calculations based on the data obtained from the Federal Operational Headquarters for the Fight Against Coronavirus.
It is clarified that the coronavirus prevalence rate shows how many people, on average, manage to get infected by one infected person before he is isolated. Along with other criteria, it was used to determine the readiness of the regions to phase out the restrictive measures introduced last spring to combat the epidemic.
Thus, in all 10 regions of the country with the largest number of infected people, the indicator remained below 1. In St. Petersburg and the Krasnoyarsk Territory, it is 0.98, in the Irkutsk and Moscow regions it is 0.96, in the Voronezh and Rostov regions, it is 0.95, in the Sverdlovsk region, it is 0.94.
At the same time, in Moscow, the coefficient decreased to 0.78 (which is also the minimum since March 12), in the Nizhny Novgorod region, to 0.73 (for the region, this is the minimum value of the indicator since August 7, 2020), and in the Samara region, it is 0.72.
