The Omicron variant of the corona virus has started spreading like wildfire in those countries of the world where cases have been reported. Experts say that even though the symptoms are mild, a large number of people can still get infected and have to go to the hospital. Many people can also lose their lives in this. Experts have given this warning at a time that 1 person has died in Britain and 10 people have reached the hospital due to Omicron.
The World Health Organization said last week, “It is spreading faster than the delta variant in South Africa, where delta prevalence is still low.” Not only this, the Omicron variant is also spreading rapidly in those countries of the world where the delta variant is widely spread. This includes countries like Britain. The WHO said that going by the available data, there is every possibility that the Omicron variant will overtake the delta variant where community transmission has started.
Omicron spreads more easily than other variants
It is not yet completely clear how deadly the new variant is. However, all the cases that have been reported so far are mild. This is reassuring but if the Omicron variant is spreading more easily than Delta and other variants, breaking the vaccine and the protection provided after the earlier infection, infecting more people then it means that More people will go to the hospital and they will die.
UK Health Minister Sajid Javik said that the more we know about Omicron so far, it is growing at a very fast pace. It’s something we’ve never seen before. It is doubling every 2 or 3 days in case of infection. Once again the race of vaccine vs virus has started. On the other hand, cases of corona are increasing in America too. The total number of coronavirus cases in America has increased to more than 50 million. These figures have been shared by Johns Hopkins University. According to the data, there have been a total of 7,97,916 deaths in the US till Monday afternoon. With this the number of cases has increased to 5,00,09,507.
