Updating pandemic data for Russia: some summary stats first
The above stats clearly show that Russian pandemic is in full-blown second wave of infections and deaths. As the chart below illustrates, however:
- Russian second wave has been associated with exactly matching dynamics in both cases and deaths without any substantial lags;
- Both cases and deaths are yet to show any signs of stabilization and peaking (which is distinct from the EU27 experience so far);
- The two effects combined suggest that Russian pandemic numbers are likely to continue to worsen into December.
