Corona infection has created havoc all over the world. At present, the virus has become a major challenge for the world. On the other hand, however, there is constant research on coronavirus. Now, relief news has come out between all of them. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has indicated that there is a possibility that the epidemic may soon end in Europe. This is being attributed to the new variant of corona omicron (Omicron Variant). In fact, it is being said at this time that this variant will infect about 60 per cent of the continent's population.
In a recent statement, Hans Kluge, Director of WHO Europe, said, "Corona has entered a new phase with Omicron. When it infects 60 per cent of Europe's population, it will end. He also said that there is a need to be more vigilant because of the virus's ability to mutate. He further said, "It has already been proved that corona's new variant Omicron is less deadly than the delta that caused the second wave of infection last year. The number of deaths due to delta had gone up. Europe is currently in the grip of omicron. On the other hand, India is expected to have a third wave of the corona by February 6.''
In fact, a study in IIT Madras claimed that the R-value that indicates the infection rate has come down from 2.2 to 1.57 between January 14 and 21. As a result, the third wave is expected to peak in the next 15 days. While the impact of omicron is diminishing in the world, transmission has started in India and amidst all this, the UK Health Safety Agency (UKHSA) has indicated that the latest version BA.2 (New Sub Variant BA.2) has been detected in about 40 other countries, which has also started receiving cases with shocking data.
