"The new omicron variant of the Corona virus is spreading faster than the delta pattern and is causing infection swells in people who have already been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid 19 disease," World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adenom Ghebreius said recently. In fact, recently, WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan has made a statement. In it, he said, "It would be "foolish" to conclude from early evidence that omicron is a lighter variant than previous formats. '
At the same time, he said, "With the increase in the number of omicron cases, all health systems are going to be stressed. The variant is successfully avoiding some immune responses. Booster programmes in many countries should be targeted for people with weak immune systems. On the other hand, WHO Director General Tedros Adnom Ghebreius said at the briefing, "There is now constant evidence that the omicron is spreading much faster than the delta version and it is more likely that omicrons can infect people who have been vaccinated with covid or those who have recovered from corona. "
At the same time, Traderos Adhanom said, "It is better to have an event canceled than to cancel life. It is good to cancel the celebration now and celebrate later. There is no doubt that if social mixing increases during the holidays, cases will increase in different countries. At the same time, he added, "We are all fed up with this epidemic. We all want to meet our friends and family. We all want to live a normal life now. It is important for all of us to take some tough decisions now. So that we can protect ourselves. In addition, the WHO team offered some hope for the world facing a new wave, saying, "2022 will be the year when the epidemic that kills more than 5.6 million people worldwide will end. '
