The government continues to provide financial support to medical organizations involved in the study of a new strain of the Omicron coronavirus. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed an order to allocate more than 400 million rubles for the sequencing (genetic analysis) of a new strain.

Money is allocated from the reserve fund of the Government to subordinate institutions of Rospotrebnadzor. The funds will be used to purchase equipment, enzymes and consumables for the qualitative determination of ribonucleic acid (RNA) chains of the Omicron genovariant. Financing will allow to examine at least 57.2 thousand samples.
