Onishchenko urged those who bought tickets to Turkey and Egypt to surrender their tickets and relax at home in an interview with Vechernyaya Moskva, he urged the residents of Russia who were planning a trip to Egypt or Turkey to surrender their tickets. In his opinion, the emergence of a new strain of coronavirus infection should be a signal for people to be vaccinated or revaccinated.
“We are now on December 3, people are buying tickets. I suggest those who bought them to Turkey and Egypt to hand them over. Instead of waiting to be closed. People see that planes are flying and they think they can fly. Let the business do business and fly wherever you want, having taken root the day before. But children's rest, which is coming very soon, should be planned at home – in the Moscow region, and not in exotic countries, ”the epidemiologist believes.
Earlier, immunologist, Ph.D. Nikolay Kryuchkov said that the new omicron – the coronavirus strain turned out to be dangerous not only for the elderly, but also for children. Children under two and adults between 20 and 39 are now more at risk than before, he said.
