"The situation we have is tough, but it is not critical. Yet, along with the attitude we have today to the rules of new reality, we will grow very quickly. Last week we had over 4,500 cases. I'm almost sure we will cross the 5,000 mark this week based on our attitude. We may grow further," he said at a briefing on Monday, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
