Montgomery believes that a new variant of SARS-CoV-2 could threaten humanity as much as the Ebola virus. Most of all, the specialist fears that the omicron will combine the danger of Ebola and the infectiousness of the delta. One of the subspecies of the Ebola virus has a mortality rate of 90%.
It is worth noting that there is no exact data yet on the risks of the new strain.
Recall that because of the omicron, the EU countries have imposed restrictions on entry from seven countries of the South African region. A new SARS-CoV-2 strain has not yet been discovered in Russia.
