About 44 percent of Moscow residents are immune to coronavirus, Anastasia Rakova, deputy mayor of the capital for social development, said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“We are systematically measuring the level of population immunity – 43-44 percent of Muscovites have antibodies G on average. This is a fairly high figure that allows the city to live an almost normal life with minimal restrictions,” she said.
According to the official, almost a million people have been vaccinated with the first component of the vaccine in Moscow, and about 80 percent of them have already received the second dose.
Earlier, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced the stabilization of the epidemiological situation in Russia. The head of the Cabinet noted that the most difficult period of the coronavirus pandemic has passed.
