According to her, citizens with a confirmed omicron strain of COVID-19 are currently under medical supervision.
The Deputy Prime Minister said that the risk of importing a new strain into the country is still increasing. The Omicron strain has now been identified in 10 percent of those who returned from South Africa, which indicates its infectiousness and possible spread.
Previously it became known that omicron was formed in the body of people with immunodeficiency, and due to the fact that there are many such people, it is now easily tolerated. At the same time, WHO has not yet reported a single case of death due to the omicron strain.
