"Jakarta, CNN Indonesia --

Russia has reported that a number of Covid-19 infections have come from a new mutated coronavirus , which is believed to be more contagious than the Delta variant .

To Russia's RIA news agency , a senior researcher with the state consumer monitoring organization, Kamil Khafizov, the new mutation of the corona virus is known as AY.4.2 and it is feared that it will spread widely.

Quoted by Reuters , Khafizov suspects this AY.4.2 variant is one of the causes of Covid-19 infections that continue to increase and reach record highs in Russia in recent times.

Although the transmission tends to be slow, Khafizov said the AY.4.2 variant can replace the Delta variant, which until now is considered the most virulent and the fastest infectious."
