In Russia epidemic influenza in 2023 will end in April and return in mid-autumn. Such a forecast was voiced by the immunologist Nikolai Kryuchkov.

Most likely, this season will be epidemic, which occurs every five to six years, he said. But after April and until mid-autumn, according to doctorthe situation is stabilizing.

“If this season is epidemically difficult until April, then there will be a break in the summer, and in the autumn and winter of 2023 it will be easier than now,” the expert said in an interview with URA.RU.

The situation will be complicated by the situation in China, where the coronavirus is spreading, he warned. But the year that has begun in terms of morbidity and mortality will not be the same as 2020 or 2021, Kryuchkov reassured.

“But this is if there is no sharp change in the properties of the infection, and a new, more pathogenic, lethal strain does not appear,” he concluded.

Earlier, the Public News Service reported that immunologist Vladislav Zhemchugov warned about the upcoming peak incidence swine flu in Russia. It will come in the New Year, the doctor specified.
