The share of those infected with the new omicron coronavirus strain among the samples examined by the Federal Biomedical Agency (FMBA) is 76%. This was announced by the head of the agency Veronika Skvortsova.
“Yesterday and today we see a fairly pronounced dominance of the omicron over other lines, primarily the delta. For example, yesterday’s figure in our, I want to emphasize this, the cohort that is recruited accounts for 76% of the omicron,” she said Skvortsov TV channel “Russia 24”… She also clarified that these conclusions were made on a sample of Moscow patients with coronavirus infection using a test system developed by the FMBA.
Recall the day before Roszdravnadzor has registered the first test system in our country capable of detecting omicron. It was reported that a set of regents allows detecting the presence of this strain with high sensitivity in just an hour and a half. The test system is intended for use in clinical laboratory diagnostics.
Previously, Veronika Skvortsova also reportedthat FMBA will be able to provide all regions of Russia with new test systems for detecting “omicron” in 7-10 days.
