Virologist Alexander Lukashev told what the mild course of the disease with the omicron strain can be connected with and when new data will appear on this score. According to him, this will not happen until the new year.
Lukashev suggested that exact figures on comparing the omicron strain with the delta or with the Wuhan strain will most likely appear only in the new year, 2022.
How much more severe this virus causes the disease, we also do not know and will not know soon, because in Africa there is a large proportion of the young population, there are simply few elderly people who can carry the disease hard, 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
Previously, in Russia, the first cases of infection with the new omicron coronavirus strain were officially discovered. He was found on two people who came to Russia from South Africa.
