A particularly infectious strain of the Omicron coronavirus was found in China and Pakistan.
This is reported by the BBC.
According to the newspaper, in these countries the first cases of infection were recorded.
In China, the carrier of the strain was identified on December 9. Confirmation was given only a few days later. As it became known, the infected person carrying the disease without symptoms has recently returned from abroad.
In Pakistan, the first infected was a 57-year-old man who did not receive the coronavirus vaccine. He, like the host in China, carries the disease without symptoms.
