The coronavirus does not want to leave us alone and worries us again with alarming news. First of all, a new variant of Covid was first discovered in Russia, which received the frivolous name FLiRT. In fact, everything is serious, and the name is just an abbreviation, which is based on the designation of mutations of this variety in comparison with its predecessors. The new strain is another version of “omicron” and is characterized by a higher degree of infectiousness. Secondly, according to the federal operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus infection, a new increase in the incidence of Covid was recorded in Russia during the week of May 13-19. During this period, the number of cases increased by almost 15% compared to the previous week. At the same time, the number of hospitalizations increased by 35%.

Summer “flirting” is dangerous for your health

FLiRT recently crossed the borders of our country and coronavirus statistics have already started to grow. Moscow was at the forefront. Here, the number of Covid cases multiplied by 1.5 in a week. According to epidemiologists, two factors became key: the increase in tourist travel during the May holidays and the strong cold wave that was observed at the beginning of the month in most regions of Russia. Natalya Pshenichnaya, Deputy Director of Clinical and Analytical Work at the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, noted that as a result of the colder weather, people who had already switched to lighter clothing experienced a deterioration in the body’s adaptive capabilities and greater vulnerability to viruses. Which, in fact, the latter took advantage of.

Officially recorded cases of infection with the new “omicron” variant in Russia are still rare: as of May 22, less than 200 cases have been recorded, but epidemiologists recommend taking it as seriously as possible. Experts around the world predict an outbreak of FLiRT cases in summer.

It is comforting to know that the new variant of covid has a relatively mild course of the disease. However, the virus is still very “young”, its effect on the body has not yet been sufficiently studied, so unfortunately, as the infection spreads, unpleasant surprises cannot be ruled out. Experts suggest that the rate of spread of the highly contagious modification of “omicron” in our country will largely be determined by the antiviral defense strategy that citizens choose for themselves.

And finally, to avoid being a victim of something other than “friendly flirting”, you should always take into account some simple hygiene measures.

universal response

According to the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, the symptoms of FLiRT are approximately the same as those of intestinal infections. Therefore, when the first symptoms appear, it is necessary to consult a doctor so that he or she can prescribe the correct treatment.

It must be said that similar symptoms of various viral infections often create problems in the diagnosis of diseases. And here universal remedies that are effective in the prevention and treatment of a wide variety of viruses can come to the rescue: broad-spectrum antiviral drugs, such as Amiksin, Interferon or Arbidol. Studies on umifenofire (the active ingredient in Arbidol) conducted in Russia, Western European countries and China have shown its effectiveness in counteracting influenza A and B viruses, ARVI, coronavirus and rotavirus, with which the virus is so easily confused. “flirtation”. .
