Coronavirus COVID-19

The Omicron coronavirus strain receives the ability to adapt and mutate at the expense of the unvaccinated population. Oksana Drapkina, chief freelance specialist in therapy and general practice of the Ministry of Health of Russia, spoke about this in an interview with URA.RU.

“As scientists say, in particular, the team of Academician A.L. Ginzburg, vaccines are effective in terms of the likelihood of infection with “Omicron”, they seriously protect against severe disease and death. The greater the proportion of the unvaccinated population, the greater the chances for the virus to adapt and mutate, therefore, not only coverage is important, but also the speed of this coverage, ”explained Oksana Drapkina.

According to a specialist from the Ministry of Health, Omicron turned out to be several times more infectious than the delta strain. “Firstly, with Omicron, children get sick, and a fairly large number of children, and secondly, with it there is a very high contagiousness, that is, many times more people have a chance of contracting a new strain than with previous mutations,” Drapkina emphasized …

Earlier, the head of the Laboratory of Biotechnology and Molecular Virology at the University of Cyprus, Leontios Kostriki, announced the identification of a new Deltacron strain. It was discovered in Cyprus by a group of local scientists. The mutation is a hybrid of Delta and Omicron strains.
