When will the active distribution of “Omicron” begin in Russia?

The head of the department of the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, Alexander Butenko, warned that the active spread of the Omicron strain in Russia, presumably, will begin in January 2022.

According to the expert, this is an approximate date. The reason for the “era of the omicron-strain” will be conditional restrictions on flights abroad. The strain is already developing, but it will come to us after some time, because all mutations and the pandemic in general came to Russia later than to Europe.

“In general, our country is somewhat aloof from those countries where omicron predominates, but the fact is that with the same set-up, Chinese versions began to appear in our country in 2020: they came from Europe, and the pandemic was developing actively. There is an opinion of experts that the era of the omicron will come here in January, ”the expert said.
