The Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko said that the protocols for the treatment of those infected with the Omicron strain have changed in the country. For example, drugs that are now considered less effective for treatment were excluded from them.

Murashko spoke about this on the air of the Rosiya 24 TV channel. He clarified that the new protocols summarize the accumulated experience of foreign and Russian specialists and make it possible to provide assistance in case of illness as efficiently as possible.

The head of the department recalled that two strains "Omicrn" and "Delta" circulate in the country. At the same time, the minister said, "Omicron" may not be so difficult for pregnant women, but it also gives a lot of complications.

Murashko pointed out that there is also a risk for newborns to get sick, because vaccination is necessary after childbirth.

Earlier, we recall, Murashko said that COVID-19 disease increases the risk of death in patients with chronic heart disease by five to seven times. And problems with the cardiovascular system occur in every second patient who has had covid.

Before that, the Ministry of Health reported that the number of patients with coronavirus in Russia had decreased by 22% over the past week. However, in some regions, the increase in the incidence continues.
