Against the background of information that Omicron is more easily tolerated than other strains of coronavirus, the so-called. COVID parties where guests gather at an infected person or invite such a guest in order to get infected from him and develop natural immunity.
The danger of this delusion was warned by the deputy director for clinical work of the Moscow Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Gabrichevsky Rospotrebnadzor, Doctor of Medicine Tatyana Ruzhentsova. According to her, such “parties” were frequent during the first wave of coronavirus, and have resumed now.
But if a person who is not infected with a coronavirus and becomes ill after such a meeting has chronic diseases, this can lead to their exacerbation. The expert also overturned that especially COVID parties were popular in northern Italy and the United States. As a rule, this led to hospitalization, and often to death.
“One might imagine that a party with a carrier of a strain that many people tolerate easily is a safe route to immunity. But such an idea is erroneous, ”summed up Ruzhentsova.
