Rospotrebnadzor called the period of detection of omicron by PCR test

According to virologists, the coronavirus test becomes positive at the end of the incubation period, before the first symptoms appear.

The incubation period is usually one to six days after infection. Given the ability of the new strain to spread faster, there is a possibility of symptoms appearing as early as the next day after contact. For comparison, for delta, the average incubation period is four days.

Scientists are asked to take the new strain as seriously as possible: despite the fact that the symptoms of omicron are more reminiscent of seasonal acute respiratory viral infections, it affects the bronchi and lungs faster and more actively.
