According to statistics, from September 18 to 24, 4,914 cases of COVID-19 were detected. In the capital, the seasonal incidence of ARVI in general is also increasing. As reported by the acting TV channel Rossiya-1. Moscow Deputy Mayor for Social Development Anastasia Rakova said about 25,000 daily cases were detected last week, of which COVID-19 accounts for around 20 percent.
The XBB subtype now dominates in the city. It represents 60-70% of all cases. It mainly occurs in the form of the common cold. And this is confirmed by the hospitalization figures: less than 1%. As for coronavirus vaccines, Anastasia Rakova said, they are now being updated so that they are effective against new strains.
The developers of the Sputnik V vaccine at the Gamaleya Institute have developed a new vaccine: the Omicron vaccine, from the XBB line. Its clinical trials will begin soon. And as soon as the vaccine is registered, the city will acquire it and go to the vaccination points.
