Specialists believe that the coronavirus infection peak in Russia will happen in mid-May, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in an interview for CNBC, published Wednesday.
"After that, we expect gradual decrease of the number or patients," he said.
"Unfortunately, every day we register significant increase of cases, but the numbers are not high enough to threaten the healthcare system," the spokesman said.
According to Peskov, the coronavirus pandemic is a "major threat to all countries."
To date, a total of 57,999 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Russia, with 4,420 patients having recovered from the virus. Russia’s latest data indicates 513 fatalities nationwide.
