"During the first outbreak, a quarantine was imposed in April-May 2020, and the incidence then dropped dramatically. The mathematical models then predicted a daily incidence of 4,000 to 16,000 cases in May. The quarantine, it turns out, had an effect. People did not hold celebrations all summer, wore a mask, washed their hands and the incidence decreased. Now we are witnessing that the citizens have completely forgotten about the observance of sanitary regulations", Nurmatov said.
