Plot The spread of a new strain of coronavirus “omicron”
783 cases of omicron infection revealed in the country, 53% of them are in Moscow, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said on Friday.
She said that over the past five days, the incidence of coronavirus has increased in 37 regions. The authorities attribute this to the arrival of the Omicron strain. In three days, the number of people infected with the new strain increased 2.6 times.
Golikova suggested that in Russia the strain “omicron” will soon replace the strain “delta” “because of its contagiousness.”
Earlier today it was reported that the government of the Russian Federation is preparing a plan to support the healthcare system in connection with the omicron. Last year, about 850 billion rubles were spent from the budget on anti-coronavirus measures in the country.
