MOSCOW, January 15 - RIA Novosti. There is no reason to say that the circulation of the coronavirus will stop, the virus will stay with us and become seasonal, said Anna Popova, head of Rospotrebnadzor.
"Today there is no reason to say that we will stop circulating this virus, we have a high degree of probability that the virus will stay with us, it will become a seasonal virus and will come to us in the epidemic season as the flu virus arrives," - said Popova at the Gaidar Forum.
According to her, when it becomes clear that there is a viral season, "and we do not get sick with it in the summer," then "we will be able to say that everything has fallen into place, we all know, we understand everything."
