Subject. This article discusses the importance of national projects for the social and economic development of Russia.
Objectives. The article aims to analyze the results of the implementation of national projects in the most important areas.
Methods. For the study, we used the methods of logical and statistical analyses.
Results. The article substantiates the view that the coronavirus infection factor, which has predetermined major changes in many areas of public life, will have a significant impact on the implementation of national projects.
Conclusions. In the face of coronavirus disease spreading, the national project Healthcare has the best chance of being fully implemented and even additional funding, while the national project Education may not be fully implemented. A review of the project's targets is a prerequisite.
