MOSCOW, 13 Feb - PRIME. The likelihood of another outbreak of coronavirus in the spring is high, so it's too early to abandon the mask mode. This was reported by RBC with reference to experts.

According to Aleksandr Chepurnov, a leading researcher at the Federal Research Center for Fundamental and Translational Medicine (FRC FTM), a jump in infection may occur at the end of March or the end of April. He emphasized that there is no need to rush to give up masks, since they prevent drops from being thrown out during conversation and breathing, which can get on the mucous membrane of a person: in the nose, mouth or eyes.

He stressed that this was very well demonstrated by the Chinese, who revealed that bespectacled people get sick 5 times less often.

"Masks are a very effective tool, and they don't require anything like that," the expert noted.

This opinion was confirmed by the director of the Institute for Health Economics of the National Research University Higher School of Economics Larisa Popovich. According to her, the spring surge in the incidence will, in particular, depend on the behavior of people and on whether the authorities will keep sanitary measures to prevent the spread of infection in force.
