- Panic in the world about Omicron variant of Corona
- WHO said – no data to tell more dangerous than delta
- Study is also going on regarding the efficacy of the vaccine
The whole world is in panic about the new variant of the corona virus, Omicron Variant News. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also described this virus as a matter of concern. Many countries of the world including America, Britain have started sealing their borders again. Meanwhile, Doctor Angelique Coetzee, who discovered the Omicron variant of Corona in South Africa, has made a new disclosure. He told how the new variant is showing the effect on the patients.
The doctor who discovered Omicron gave relief news
Doctor Angelique Coetzee said that so far very mild symptoms have been seen in patients infected with the Omicron variant. He also cautioned that, however, we need more research before we can know the severity of the disease for vulnerable people. He said that patients infected with this variant have told him how they are feeling.
The World Health Organization does not even have data
At the same time, the World Health Organization has also said that there is not enough data to suggest that the Omicron variant of the corona virus is more dangerous than Delta One. WHO has also expressed similar doubts about the efficacy of the vaccine on Omicron. The WHO has also said that it is not yet clear whether people infected with the Omicron strain are more at risk.
It is not yet clear whether Omicron is more contagious (for example, more easily transmitted from person to person) than other variants, including Delta. The number of people infected with this variant has increased rapidly in South Africa, but epidemiologists are studying whether it is due to the Omicron variant or some other reason.
WHO said – study continues regarding vaccine
The WHO also said that it is not yet clear whether Omicron is at greater risk of infection than other variants, including Delta. Preliminary data showed that hospitalization rates are increasing in South Africa. So the Omicron variant could be due to an increase in the total population. WHO is also working with a group of technical experts to determine whether the new strain could affect the effectiveness of existing vaccines and other hygiene measures.
Identified on Friday
The WHO had identified the Omicron variant on Friday. It was first found in South Africa. It is believed to be more infectious than all its earlier variants. The WHO named it Omicron, based on the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet.
