Geneva
The World Health Organization (WHO) has given good news about the terror caused by the omicron type of corona virus. The WHO says most cases of Omicron are “mild” and current corona vaccines should provide a high level of protection against hospitalization and death. However, a WHO spokesman also said that the data suggests that the Omicron mutant strain is infecting more people than the delta type. Even those who take all doses of the vaccine cannot avoid it.

A WHO official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there were no indications that the current vaccine would be less effective in reducing hospital admissions and deaths. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Despite this, the WHO has now officially acknowledged for the first time that the Omicron variant will not wreak havoc on the world like the Delta variant, which was initially feared.
Good news from Israel, booster dose effective on Omicron, Pfizer vaccine 90 percent effective
In South Africa, 46 cases were reported per million population
Despite the threat of Omicron, South Africa still has fewer corona patients in terms of population than Britain and the United States. According to research from Oxford University, 46 cases out of a population of one million have been reported in South Africa. At the same time, 628 cases were reported in Britain and 246 in the United States out of a population of one million. Corona cases have increased in South Africa but are still low. In South Africa, 172 cases of Omicron have been reported, and patients with the new type have very mild symptoms.

Meanwhile, the tightening of travel restrictions by Japan on Wednesday added to the world’s woes with the Omicron type of Kovid-19. At the same time, cases of infection with a new form of the virus have been reported elsewhere, and new evidence suggests that this type was prevalent weeks before the trial. Not much is known about Omicron, such as how contagious it is, how it can avoid vaccines, etc. However, the head of the European Commission has acknowledged that it could take a long time for scientists to come up with further answers.
What is the state of the world?
Japan has stopped booking tickets for incoming flights
Meanwhile, many countries in Europe are still grappling with the old form of the Covid Delta. There has been a sharp rise in the number of infections and hospital admissions. At the same time, Japan has maintained its aggressive stance. All international airlines have been asked to stop booking tickets for domestic flights by the end of December. Japan has confirmed this pattern in a person coming from Peru via Qatar, which is the second case of Omicron in the country. However, many countries around the world have imposed restrictions on the arrival of travelers to South Africa.

The US is taking steps to tighten testing requirements for international travelers. The World Health Organization (WHO) in South Africa was alerted last week to omicron but did not know where or when the new form would appear. However, it is clear that they were in Europe before South Africa. But Nigeria reported on Wednesday that its public health agency said the sample was found in a sample collected in October. It is also the first known case of this mutation.

Austria has extended the lockdown until December 11
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia said on Wednesday that it had confirmed the first case of Omicron. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said: “I have heard from our scientists, they are all saying that we do not know enough. So it will take them two to three weeks. In normal times it is short but in epidemic times it is eternal. Meanwhile, Germany’s Intensive Care Association warned on Wednesday that the number of Kovid patients requiring intensive care before Christmas could reach new highs and is expected to reach an all-time high compared to last year. Austria, on the other hand, has extended the lockdown to 11 December. Portugal also planned to wear masks in homes on Wednesday.

The first case of the ‘Omicron’ variant has been confirmed in the US
The first case of a new form of corona virus called ‘Omicron’ has been confirmed in the United States. A man in California has been diagnosed with the new strain of the virus. The White House made the announcement on Wednesday. At the same time, scientists are constantly studying the dangers posed by the new form. President Joe Biden’s administration imposed a travel ban on South African countries late last month. This is where the new look of Kovid was discovered. It is spread across more than 24 countries. The top infectious disease specialist in America, Dr. Anthony Fawcett told the White House that this was the first case of covid-19 “omicron” infection in the United States.
