Russian woman announced infection with omicron-strain of coronavirus

A Russian tourist who arrived from South Africa said that she might have an omicron strain COVID-19

Russian tourist who returned from South Africa stated that she had found an omicron-strain of coronavirus. E1.RU writes about this on Monday, December 6th.

According to the woman, she had a fever all night, a very strong cough and a sore throat. In the morning, doctors came to do a test and said that the patient was presumably infected with the omicron strain of COVID-19. Yulia also noted that when asked to show the result of the study, she was answered: “But we have not.” There is also no official confirmation of this information.

On December 5, it became known that nine Russians who arrived from South Africa had a PCR test for coronavirus at the airport. They are under medical supervision at the observatory.

Earlier, the chief employee of the Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, Anatoly Altstein, said that the COVID-19 pandemic could end in 2022 if the omicron strain turns out to be less pathogenic than delta, and people will be more actively vaccinated.
