The omicron type of coronavirus has spread to 69 countries around the world, and where social infections have spread, the number of patients has doubled in one and a half to three days, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
The WHO said in an update on Saturday that Omicron was spreading rapidly in countries with high levels of population immunity; It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The WHO declared the new strain of coronavirus a “worrying variant” on November 26, just days after Omicron was first identified, but little is known about the severity of the illness it causes, Reuters reported.
“There is still limited information on the severity of the Omicron infection. More information is needed to understand the extent of the severity and how it is affected by vaccines and pre-existing immunity, ”said the WHO.
“In the case of Omicron, there is still no peer-reviewed evidence on the effectiveness and efficacy of the ticker, and the information available is insufficient,” they said.
The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the number of cases of the new coronavirus could rise so fast that hospitals in some areas could overflow. In this case, they have spoken especially about the United Kingdom and South Africa.
