Doctor Zhemchugov said that the omicron

The omicron strain is the last mutation of SARS-CoV-2 before it left for another population, says Vladislav Zhemchugov, a specialist in especially dangerous infections, an immunologist, Doctor of Medical Sciences. He said last year that the new version of the coronavirus would be more infectious.

“The virus needs this in order to spread throughout the planet as much as possible. He is looking for a new host, because the collective immunity among people has reached such a level that the virus can no longer multiply,” the specialist explained.

Virologists note that the lethality of the omicron is low.

It is highly likely that SARS-CoV-2 will leave the human population for some other, Zhemchugov announced his forecast.

The immunologist urged not to introduce new restrictive measures, since the omicron strain can be a “natural vaccine” and supplant the previous, more dangerous variants of the virus.

“It spreads powerfully, creates a very high-quality immunity to all new mutations and has an extremely low lethality, that is, it practically does not kill healthy people. This should be used, but wisely,” the expert added (quote from TASS).
