Resolution of March 23, 2021 No. 448

Information on the new coronavirus infection will be centrally collected and analyzed in an interdepartmental format.

Federal and regional organizations conducting molecular genetic studies of viruses will send information on decoding the genome of the coronavirus pathogen to the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor. The Government approved the temporary procedure for the provision of such information.

According to the document, the results of the genome decoding should be transferred to the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology within 24 hours from the moment of their receipt. The procedure for interaction, requirements for the composition and volume of information will be approved by Rospotrebnadzor.

The Central Research Institute of Epidemiology will summarize the information received and send the information to Rospotrebnadzor. Based on these data, for example, when new strains of coronavirus are detected, the department will assess the epidemiological situation and decide on the organization of preventive measures.

Mutations of the new coronavirus infection can potentially affect the epidemic process, as well as the course of the disease. Rapid monitoring of changes in the new coronavirus infection is extremely important for a timely response.
