A virologist from China told about people vulnerable to omicron

A virologist from China, Zhang Wenhong, said that the omicron coronavirus strain is still deadly and can be dangerous for people with weakened immunity. This is reported by the Global Times.

The virologist stressed that the strain is clearly dangerous for people with a weak or weakened immune system. According to Wenhun, omicron should not be put on a par with the "severe version of a cold."

Restrictive barriers between countries can be lifted only when people have collective immunity, said a Chinese virologist. To do this, citizens need to undergo a vaccination procedure, the specialist stressed.

The day before, a new variant of the coronavirus was discovered in Cyprus, which is a hybrid of the delta and omicron strains.
