Scientists said that this information helps to understand why the new strain is transmitted so quickly from person to person.
At the same time, the study showed that when infected with omicron, the infection in the lungs is significantly lower than with the original virus. Experts suggest that this can be used to identify the severity of the disease.
So far, the researchers have not made any other harsh statements and predictions about the omicron strain. It is only known that it is spreading several times faster than previous versions of the coronavirus known to the world.
