The Omicron variant of Corona is spreading rapidly in Britain and the European Union, a group of 27 countries. The Delta variant is already wreaking havoc in this region. As a result, a record 78,610 new cases of corona infection were reported in Britain on Wednesday. Earlier on January 8, the maximum number of 68,053 cases were found. In France also 65,713 new cases have been found. During the last one week, on average, more than 50 thousand new cases are being reported daily, which is the highest since November last year.
Emphasis on working from home
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said at a Downing Street press conference that Omicron cases were doubling in less than two days. However, he added that the increasing number of booster doses would help reduce the impact of this variant. Health Minister Sajid Javid has not ruled out the possibility of stricter restrictions in the coming days and has insisted on wearing masks and working from home as far as possible.
Omicron will leave Delta behind
The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control has said that Omicron will become the most dominant variant in Europe by the middle of next month and will surpass Delta as well. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has warned that Latin American and Caribbean countries may be left behind in the treatment of corona. The organization has called for working together to provide equal treatment to all in the region.
New variant spread to 77 countries
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanam Ghebreyesus said that the Omicron variant has spread in an extraordinary way. This variant was first revealed on 24 November. After that, within three weeks it has spread to 77 countries. He said that only vaccine cannot protect against corona. To avoid corona, it is necessary to wear a mask, maintain physical distance and wash hands thoroughly at some intervals.
