London
A senior UK cabinet minister has said that the pattern of the new variant of the corona virus, Omicron, is not as dangerous as Delta. Most people infected with Omicron no longer need ventilators and have a reduced intensive care unit (ICU). His announcement has brought relief to those countries of the world, where corona cases are increasing rapidly due to Omicron.

Britain’s Education Minister Nadeem Jahavi said the government was closely monitoring hospitalization figures, as the majority of people infected with Omicron are over the age of 50. However, this is the group in which 90 percent of people have been given a third (booster) dose of the Kovid vaccine, which prevents becoming seriously ill.

The minister agreed with the opinion of his other cabinet colleagues that further restrictions on the lockdown may not be needed, even though Covid infections in England remain high.
