Beware, Omicron is more contagious than Delta and can infect those who have been vaccinated! This is WHO's explanation

 


Omicron is the latest variant of Covid-19 which was said to be lighter than the previous variant.

Even so, we should not be complacent to take it lightly. The UK is the first country to report the death of a person with the Omicron variant. Therefore, the UK is currently on the agenda for giving booster vaccines to its citizens.



Meanwhile, WHO provides new information regarding this variant which is the cause of the spike in cases in many countries.


Quoted from Al-Jazeera, WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus revealed that Omicron is more infectious than the Delta variant. Both variants are known to be included in the variant of concern.



In a routine WHO press conference in Geneva on Monday (20/12), he also said that this variant can infect people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and can infect coronavirus survivors again.


Omicron variants have been found in 89 countries.
