In the summer, the strain of coronavirus infection can mutate and become the source of a new wave of morbidity. This opinion was expressed by the chief physician of the Leader of Medicine medical center, pediatrician, infectious disease specialist, vaccinologist Yevgeny Timakov.
“Considering how quickly the coronavirus itself is changing, I do not exclude that some new strain will appear in the summer, which will be more infectious, causing the 4-5-6-10th wave. The summary is that in order to control the epidemiological process, not only the state and the Ministry of Health should work, citizens should also work, “he said.
The vaccinologist also doubts that in the near future the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 in the Russian Federation will decline in the near future.
