The researchers took an electron micrograph of a monkey kidney cell infected with the omicron strain. On it, they saw damage with swollen vesicles containing viral particles. At high magnification, they even managed to make out clusters of characteristic spherical objects with crown-shaped spikes on their surface.
Previously, virologist Alexander Lukashev told what the mild course of the disease with the omicron-strain could be connected with and when new data will appear on this score. According to him, this will not happen before the new year – “How much more severe this virus causes the disease, we also do not know and will not know soon … in Europe, where this virus came from the United States, many are vaccinated, and many get sick with this virus again, the disease is also easier. “.
