According to the methodological recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor, the infection prevalence rate (Rt) is an indicator that determines the average number of people that one patient infects before isolation. It is calculated based on data on the increase in new cases. Along with the free bed capacity and the rate of testing per 100 thousand of the population, the Rt coefficient is used, according to the recommendations, to make a decision on the phased removal or return of restrictions in the regions.
