WHO announces new omicron variant established in 57 nations


(MENAFN) Corresponding to World Health Organization (WHO), the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus was found in 57 nations to date.

The organization announced in its week-on-week epidemiological statement "Even if the severity is equal or potentially even lower than for delta variant, it is expected that hospitalizations will increase if more people become infected and that there will be a time lag between an increase in the incidence of cases and an increase in the incidence of deaths."

The statement also declared that we require extra information to know if the omicron variant might cause less protection from inoculations.

WHO as well said "Vaccine effectiveness studies are vital to understand how vaccines protect against infection, symptomatic and severe disease, and death."
