Virologist, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor, Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation Anatoly Altstein spoke about the timing of death from coronavirus, informs portal URA.RU.
According to the specialist, on average, death with COVID-19 occurs three to four weeks after infection. He noted that if the omicron strain entered the UK a few days ago, then you need to wait three weeks to understand what is happening to those infected. “I think nothing terrible will happen to them,” Altstein added.
The expert believes that the available data indicate that one should not expect high mortality or a severe course of the disease with the omicron strain. “The disease has no clear distinctive features. It goes like a cold. So far, from what has been described, the diseases are not severe, but we are talking mainly about young people from South Africa, ”he said. Some data will appear at least by the new year, the virologist believes.
Earlier, Deputy Director for Research of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor Alexander Gorelov assessed the theory of the artificial origin of the omicron strain of coronavirus. According to him, this is the magnet to which human thought constantly returns when a new option appears. The epidemiologist noted that today it is impossible to either prove or disprove this version using modern methods that science possesses.
