Coronavirus infections rise fastest in Moscow, Moscow region, St. Petersburg - Popova

  MOSCOW:- The incidence rate of coronavirus cases has been the fastest in three regions of Russia, namely Moscow, Moscow region, and St. Petersburg, the head of the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor), Anna Popova, said.


"Today's epidemic situation is extremely tense... The most growth is in three of our constituent regions: Moscow, Moscow region, and St. Petersburg. The combined share of these three in all recorded daily infections is 60%," Popova told the presidium of the Russian government's coordinating council in charge of the coronavirus response on Thursday.


"Nor does the situation remain favorable nationwide in general," she said.




 "The highest increase in infections is observed among two age groups: 18-29s and 30-49s. The active employable population who have the most communication and who - and this, unfortunately, has been very obvious over the past month - are flouting the requirements we have been prescribing over the past year and a half," Popova said.


"The least infections are among older people, because they are the most vaccinated of all age groups in Russia," she said.


"The coverage of the immunization of the working-age population has, unfortunately, been inadequate," Popova said.
