“It seems that omicron really proceeds in a very moderate form and mortality practically does not increase in countries with a high level of vaccination. But they have it, 60-70% of the population has been vaccinated there,” Myasnikov wrote in the Telegram channel.
He also expressed the opinion that soon a new version of the virus will cover Russia, so he called for more active vaccination.
