GENEVA Omicron : The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhnom Gabrias, has warned that the corona virus epidemic is not over, and that new forms are likely to emerge after the omkron. The WHO chief’s warning comes at a time when it is being argued that the Omicron variant is too light and has eliminated the threat posed by the corona virus.
Tedros said the risk of omicron may be low on average, but it is misleading to describe it as a mild disease. He said that Omicron was affecting health services despite less serious cases being admitted to hospitals and causing deaths.
According to a BBC report, record cases of Omicron were recorded in European countries on Tuesday. The BBC quoted Mike Ryan, WHO’s director of emergencies, as saying that the growing prevalence of omicron is expected to increase hospital admissions and deaths, especially in countries where fewer people have been vaccinated. ۔
