The doctor warned about the endless circulation of the omicron strain


Medical worker. Archival photo MOSCOW, 5 Jan. The chief profilactologist of the Ural Federal District, Doctor of Medical Sciences Sergei Tokarev said in an interview with the portal Ura.ru that the omicron strain of coronavirus can begin to circulate endlessly due to its ability to be transmitted between animals and people.

& # 34; Data appears that “omicron” can be transmitted to rodents, and if the infection goes back and forth into the human population, it will be very bad. Thus, the omicron can circulate endlessly until it mutates again, – Sergey Tokarev explained.

He also added that now the new strain is actively replacing the delta variation, but, the doctor emphasized, it is too early to draw conclusions , will this process end with the final victory of the omicron.

& # 34; Perhaps in some regions & # 34; delta & # 34; will remain, and both strains will spread at the same time. For example, now in the south of France, in Provence, an increase in the incidence and an increase in the number of hospitalizations is associated with the & # 34; delta & # 34;, concluded Tokarev.

The World Health Organization at the end of November classified a new variant of the coronavirus discovered in South Africa, as disturbing. Strain B.1.1.529 WHO named the Greek letter “omicron”.
