WHO Chief: Omicron Covid-19 Variant Not Mild

HEALTHCARE

On Thursday, 6th January 2022, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) has now cautioned that, as the Omicron covid-19 variant has been appearing to be a less serious disease than the Delta variant of the novel corona virus, and it does not mean that, it should possibly be categorised as mild.

The chief of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that, just like the earlier variants of the corona virus, the Omicron covid-19 variant has been hospitalising the people and the new corona virus variant has been killing the people, and the increasing number of the corona virus has been so big and quick that is has been very overwhelming the health systems across the different countries in the world.

The director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that, last week, the highest number of the corona virus had been reported so far in the novel corona virus pandemic, and they all know that, for instance this has been an underestimate of the Omicron corona virus cases because the reported numbers of the covid-19 does not reflect the backlog of the covid-19 testing across the holidays season, the number of the positive tests that have been registered taken by the people themselves.

The WHO also said that, a record of 9.5 million new corona virus cases had been recorded across the world during the week starting from 27th December 2021 to 2nd January 2022, and the number of deaths caused by novel corona virus has been decreased by 10 percent across the world.
