Rospotrebnadzor could not assess the danger of the Delta strain

Rospotrebnadzor reported that the Indian strain of the coronavirus, also called “Delta”, is much more infectious than the previous varieties of SARS-CoV-2.

“One case in India, for example, could infect six,” – said TASS Natalya Pshenichnaya, Deputy Director for Clinical and Analytical Work, Central Research Institute of Epidemiology, Rospotrebnadzor. At the same time, experts cannot yet say for sure whether the death rate from COVID-19 increased with the appearance of this strain.

Earlier, the representative of the World Health Organization in Russia Melita Vujnovich recalled that not so long ago in India, another mutation of the coronavirus, Delta Plus, was identified. You can get infected, even just passing by a sick person on the street without a mask. And this strain also affects many cells in the body, the WHO stressed.
