COVID: Here we go again
  • The authorities of Buryatia decided to return part of the restrictions due to the increase in the number of cases of COVID-19, according to a message on the official portal of the republic.

    The regional government noted that Buryatia is the third, after Moscow and St. Petersburg, in terms of the rate of increase in the incidence.

    “Today there has been a significant increase in the need for hospitalization over the past week. If we compare with the data as of May 31, then there were half the number of patients on treatment. At the moment, 1211 beds are deployed. The occupancy of the bed capacity is high, in the morning it amounted to 91%, ”said the Minister of Health of Buryatia, Evgenia Ludupova.

    In the republican Rospotrebnadzor, the deterioration of the epidemiological situation was associated with mass gatherings of citizens.

    In reality it is because all mass media already told everyone that we won and COVID won't return :-) Same as they did last summer.

"In order to work effectively, we need to mobilize institutions of various kinds - both federal institutions and regional, local, sectoral ones. We need to work with everyone and be ready for a possible impact of this virus on a new round," the president stressed.

  • New 1990s in Russia

    Age-specific mortality rate (AMR). This is the proportion of people who have died of a CERTAIN AGE this year. It is considered according to certain age groups, for example, VKS for women 45-49 years old. Obviously, this indicator does not depend on the age structure - after all, if there are more people in this age group, this will not affect the relative number of deaths of these ages.

    EIC "Invest-Proekt" published a study of the profitability of Russians and found out that the state earns on a conditional Russian twice as much as it spends on its maintenance. Quote:

    “According to the calculations of the ECC“ Invest-Project ”, the average profitability of a conventional Russian for 2010-2020 was 186.2%.

    For calculations, we took the consolidated budget expenditures of all levels (federal, regional and local) for each year and divided by the annual GDP per capita. The conventional Russian is profitable.

    But as you can see from the graph above, over 10 years, the growth in profitability on an annualized basis happened only 3 times - in 2011, 2017 and 2018. At the same time, it is curious to note that the conventional Russian gave the highest profitability in 2018 (202.2%), which just coincided with the increase in VAT. The lowest level of profitability for this decade is expected at the end of 2020 - 176.2%.

    Thus, the profitability per conditional Russian can be called one of the key targets for the effectiveness of socio-economic development "
