A new strain of coronavirus may appear in South Africa due to the large number of people with immunodeficiency. According to the director of the center N.F. Gamaleya Alexander Gintsburg, the mutation will spread faster than the “omicron”, reports TASS.
The scientist noted that the coronavirus has a “colossal” variability potential. According to him, this virus has not yet shown variability at the level of recombination.
Earlier it was reported that the number of officially registered deaths due to COVID-19 in the world was more than 6.5 million, and infected – 608 million. Such data was provided by the World Health Organization.
According to Konstantin Chernov, development director of the Chumakov Center, the source of the coronavirus may remain a mystery. According to him, this virus “does not contain unambiguous signs of man-made.”
