Popova called the speed of propagation of “omicron” in the world frightening


MOSCOW, Dec 17 RIA Novosti head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova told RIA Novosti. “We can see the rapid development of the situation in the UK, in Africa, where more than 75% of detected cases occur daily in omicron, the same is in South Africa. The growth rates are frightening in their danger and risk.” , she said. Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that 25 cases of omicron had already been identified in Russia. Anna Popova, in turn, did not rule out the sequential spread of this strain in the country. The new SARS-CoV-2 strain was first discovered in Botswana and South Africa in mid-November. It contains dozens of mutations in the S-protein, which the pathogen needs to infect cells. It is believed that this variant originally developed in an immunocompromised person, possibly infected with HIV. The World Health Organization has recognized B.1.1.529 as “of concern” and named it “omicron” after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet. Experts believe that even those who have been ill and vaccinated can become infected, and symptoms range from fatigue to headaches and body aches. “Omicron” was detected on a student who came from Congo to Rostov-on-Don
