WHO: Omicron more dangerous than delta virus

Let us tell you that two days ago, the WHO said that preliminary analysis has revealed that the Omicron variant is more infectious than the delta variant and vaccines are also proving less effective against it. It had said that Omicron would soon leave the Delta variant behind. The analysis also revealed that Omicron produces less severe symptoms, meaning that a person does not become seriously ill if infected with it.

Omicron will be seen increasing in the coming days

England's chief medical officer, Professor Chris Witty, warned that the number of daily cases would be broken several times in the coming weeks. He said that the country is facing two epidemics, one of which has come due to the very fast-growing Omicron and the other due to the delta variant.

According to Hong-Kong University, Omicron was found in the human respiratory tract within 24 hours of infection. The study also found that the new variant is 10 times less effective in replicating in human lungs than the delta variant. From this, it can be inferred that the disease caused by this will not be more serious. That is, the Omicron variant spreads rapidly from person to person but does not cause as much damage to the lungs as Delta or previous corona variants have done.
