Russia: 'Good situation' - Chinese coronavirus specialists on Moscow's COVID-19 efforts *PARTNER CONTENT*

Russian Federation, Moscow
April 14, 2020 at 12:57 GMT -00:00 · Published

Medical specialists from China who arrived in Russia to share their experience of the COVID-19 disease commented on the Russian efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus, speaking in Moscow on Monday.

"We suppose that Russian and Moscow authorities in particular took effective and reasonable steps to prevent and control [the spread of virus]. We saw as well that there is a small number of people and cars in the streets and people consciously wearing masks. We think that the situation is good," said Sui Suntao, Deputy Director of the China's Virology Institute of the State Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

"According to the estimates, in the next two or three weeks the coronavirus will spread widely. And personally I hope that in Russia there will be enough medical resources in order to take care of the patients," commented U Siaomei, another member of the Chinese task force.

The Chinese team, which consists of virologists and infectious disease specialists, is due to stay in Russia until April 18.

As of Tuesday Russia has recorded 21,102 COVID-19 cases and 170 deaths.
