Omicron infection not moderate

The Omicron variation of coronavirus has spread like wildfire around the world because it was very first found in southern Africa in November. This brand-new version is a lot more contagious than previous strains yet seems to cause a much less serious condition.
Amid the exponential surge in the Omicron situations across the globe, the WHO cautioned that the sheer number of people contaminated will imply many individuals are still falling seriously ill as well as passing away.
