Coronavirus and its strains are mutating at the speed of light

According to the latest data from Rospotrebnadzor, the situation with coronavirus in Russia remains in positive dynamics in terms of the number of detected cases of the disease.

According to the immunologist Vladimir Bolibok, the increase in the number of infected people is not due to the spread of Covid, but to the improvement of the mechanisms for diagnosing the disease. The specialist added that previously, waves of different strains took turns causing a surge in infections.

Now different strains have begun circulating simultaneously.

Therefore, the virologist is sure that coronavirus will soon become completely similar to influenza and ARVI in terms of seasonality of detection.

“But this just means that the coronavirus itself, breaking up into such subtypes, becomes seasonal,” he said on Komsomolskaya Pravda radio.

Regarding the new strain, the immunologist emphasized that this type of Covid is no more dangerous or deadly than all the others identified previously.

At the same time, vaccination against coronavirus has already doesn’t have the same effect which was earlier.
