Demosthenes Sarians, a professor at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, told News Beast, a news website, that the wave of infection with the "Omicron" mutant will subside by February 20, which is likely to be the last mutation of the deadly virus.

The famous scientist in Greece referred to a mathematical model for the development of the next "upper" wave of the pandemic.

In the past five days in Greece, new records of coronavirus (known also as COVID-19) infection were recorded every day.

On Friday, there were 40.5 thousand cases, and the Omicron strain became the dominant strain in the country.

According to Sarians, the upward trend will continue until January 20 this year, and the average weekly level will reach 66 thousand infections.

The Greek expert added that this means that there may be days when there are 80,000 or even 100,000 coronavirus cases per day.

As stated by Sarians, who believes that calculating the average weekly level is a more accurate method than the daily method.

"So, on February 20, a month after the peak of the Omicron wave, its decline will end. Then the average weekly number of infections will be 3,500-4000 cases. Then we will be at the end of the Omicron and a large part of our community will have immunity," he said.
