Professor Dejan Trajkovski in his latest analysis analysis emphasizes that the new Omicron strain of Covid-19 in Macedonia will arrive before the New Year holidays, with the mass arrival of emigrants from Western Europe.
As the effective reproductive number Rt = 0.88 ± 0.24, which is already well below the one, shows, the reduction in daily numbers is going relatively well, especially as for the late autumn, the season of respiratory infections. The fact that the rate of positive tests is decreasing, is also gratifying, although the last seven-day average is still quite high, at around 13.4%. Recoveries from the disease also does its thing, so we somehow survived the peak of the contagion due to the opening of nightclubs and bars. If we did not know that a wave of the new Omicron strain was imminent, we would already be able to make the first predictions about the time of the end of the wave and the expected number of cases by the end, he said.
