The alleged reason for the next increase in the incidence of coronavirus in the YaNAO is associated with a decrease in immunity in people to one of the descendants of the Omicron variant. This was told to URA.RU by the chief preventive specialist of the Ural Federal District, Doctor of Medical Sciences Sergey Tokarev.
“We can assume that the growth is due to the spread of one of the descendants of the Omicron BA.2 variant, the level of immunity to which, in general, has decreased among the population. We are experiencing a mild start of another rise in incidence, which is not seasonal,” the doctor explained.
Tokarev added that an increase in the incidence is observed in many regions of the country. According to the Stopcoronavirus.RF website, 152 cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the YaNAO over the past day. One person has died.
