But “omicron” is now actively replacing its predecessor – the “delta” strain.

“In Moscow and St. Petersburg, the vast majority of new cases should already be caused by the omicron. Most likely, other million-plus cities will also catch up,” Kryuchkov shared his opinion. In the coming weeks, studies by Russian scientists will confirm this assumption.
