"Covid is now almost indistinguishable in terms of disease progress and symptoms from other viral respiratory infections," Pshenichnaya said. "However, it remains insidious, causing exacerbations or manifestations of various autoimmune diseases, diseases of the skin, lungs, musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, with the development of various thromboembolic complications."

She specified that if a patient is exhibiting prolonged COVID-19 symptoms, they should seek professional medical care, since this could be a sign of a worsening chronic medical condition that the patient might not have been aware of.More than 3,500 new coronavirus cases were confirmed in Russia in the past 24 hours, and 45 people have died from COVID-19, including seven in Moscow alone, according to the federal response center. Over 3,000 people have recovered over the 24-hour period, which is 10.7% more than the day before.In total, over 1,100 people infected with COVID-19 have been hospitalized in Russia over the past 24 hours, which is an 11.1% decrease from the day before.
