(ORDO NEWS) — Virologist, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Pyotr Chumakov said on the air of Radio Russia that the rapidly spreading omicron strain of coronavirus could have been created artificially.
In his opinion, the subvariant of the infection was deliberately made “super-weakened”. The virologist saw in the DNA chain of the South African strain a set of mutations that are characteristic of the previous strains.
“Now the British have decided to end the pandemic, because the time has come for some drastic changes in the world,” Chumakov said.
According to him, all mutations of the previous strains were collected in the omicron, but at the same time an insert of three amino acids is found in it, which correspond to the season of the coronavirus. The virologist believes that this detail could not have arisen in this strain under conditions of natural origin.
Earlier, the chief medical officer of the American pharmaceutical company Moderna, Paul Burton, said that simultaneous infection with omicron and delta strains could lead to further mutations of the coronavirus infection.
