As a result, the population sickness rate and mortality increase, and the demographic situation is deteriorating. The level of mass medical care in the Russian Federation often fails to meet the requirements associated with emerging threats, which leads to appreciable economic losses.

Up to 35-45 percent of even healthy people are weather-sensitive. Changes in the mean daily air temperature, humidity, fluctuations of atmospheric pressure, precipitation level, and wind velocity negatively influence the health of people liable to cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.
