COVID-19 coronavirus

In a month, a new wave of COVID-19 morbidity will begin in Russia in connection with the spread of strain BA.2 – “stealth omicron”, which has caused an increase in morbidity in other countries. Such a forecast in a conversation with URA.RU was given by the head of the laboratory of especially dangerous infections of the FIC Center for Fundamental Translational Medicine, Professor of Virology, Doctor of Biological Sciences Alexander Chepurnov.

“Stealth Omicron” is not even a harbinger, but the cause of the sixth wave. I still hope that it will be lower, although what we see in Europe… It will be a little less fast than “omicron”, because its advantage in infectivity over “omicron” is not as high as the advantage of “omicron” “Before the” delta “were. “Omicron in front of the” Delta “pushed out literally at the click of a finger,” – said Alexander Chepurnov.

As for the timing, the virologist believes that the rise in morbidity will begin in a month. “I think that in a month Stealth Omicron will do.” All the new rises in morbidity that are going on now, including China, because it is so active that even the Chinese with their superdiscipline and supermeasures cannot cope with it. This will inevitably come to us, “he added.

The interlocutor of URA.RU noted that the closed air communication with Europe will not be able to protect the country from the spread of “stealth omicron”. “It simply came to our notice then. And since the message is still there, they are still flying, the wave will come to us not through Istanbul, but through Dubai, “said the specialist.

On March 31, 565,139 cases of coronavirus were registered in Germany, a record for the entire pandemic. High incidence is also observed in Austria, China, France and other countries. Meanwhile, Kamil Hafizov, head of the research group for the development of new diagnostic methods at the Rospotrebnadzor Institute of Epidemiology, said that the share of stealth omicron in Russia was growing and was already present in almost all regions of the country.
