How Russia Views Supposedly New Deadly Virus’s – Commonsense and Calm
Treat new viruses like an Elusive Joe, advises a specialist in particularly dangerous infections.
Today, a strain of “omicron ninja” has been identified in Belarus, which is able to evade the immune response and evade antibodies.
And the day before, China announced another new killer virus. They say it’s very easy to die from his kind, but there is no cure.
But there is no need to panic, immunologist Vladislav Zhemchugov told @Sputnik.
All that doctors fear today is an increase in the number of deaths. If all the current coronavirus sequences, all its descendants, and omicron strains do not cause an increase in lethality, they should be treated calmly.
If he gets an advantage that will break through collective immunity to the coronavirus (to all variants – from Wuhan to omicron), Lanya will multiply. There’s nothing special about it.
But the risk of importing a new genipavirus into the Russian Federation is low, no cases of infection have been identified.
