This time in the United States, a person died in the state of Texas due to the new type of corona, Omicron. Meanwhile, Omicron has so far killed 12 people in the UK. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said any decision could be made considering the health risks of the people.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has suggested canceling the Christmas holidays in different countries of the world to control Omicron. So far, several people have died in this new type of corona in the country. Hundreds are hospitalized in critical condition. British health experts say a major humanitarian catastrophe could ensue if omicron infections continue at the current rate.
In such a situation, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that any action will be taken to control Omicron. In a video message on Monday, he said the government would be forced to take strict action if public health was at risk.
Earlier, in an interview, British Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab said the government had no plans to impose lockdowns or strict restrictions on Omicron. Much of the information about the virus is still unknown. He said that only actual information about this will be taken action.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has suggested that control over Omicron be imposed on Christmas celebrations. At a regular briefing in Geneva, Switzerland, the head of the company, Tedros Adhanam Gabriasis, said that Omicron was spreading faster than the Delta. He said even two-dose vaccinators were being infected with the virus.
“Omicron is spreading faster than Delta,” he said. We have received a lot of information and evidence in this regard. However, more information is needed to know the details about Omicron. Research is ongoing. More details about this variant will be known in the next two weeks. In some cases, the vaccine does not work to prevent omicron. This is a matter of great concern.
Omicron is spreading in Europe as well as Asian countries. The situation in India in particular is the worst. The country’s health experts fear that the number of infections in India may increase due to various festivals including Christmas.
A new type of coronavirus, Omicron, was first identified in South Africa last November. Since then, it has spread rapidly to at least 69 countries and regions around the world. Although Omicron is much more contagious than its predecessors, it is not yet clear how serious it is.
