The risk of omicron is increasing rapidly. In a statement, last Monday, the epidemiologist and communicable pathologist said, "People should get themselves vaccinated at the earliest and not sit down thinking that the omicron form of Covid-19 is light. He further said, "The virus can infect people who are elderly who have not been vaccinated and have poor immunity. Dr Raman Gangakhedkar said, 'No one should wait for 'heard immunity' to happen as that process will take time and many people can die.''
The 'heard immunity' is indirectly prevented against infectious diseases. This occurs when populations or groups of people develop immunity against them when vaccinated or after recovering from infection. Meanwhile, the health expert also said, "Instead of waiting for natural immunity (by infection), if we go for immunity through the vaccine, it will be good and the damage will be minimal. Infection is never good, even if it is light. Today, it (omicron) may seem lighter, but has anyone thought of its long-term effects on the human body? ''When he was asked, 'Is the current situation the beginning of the end of the epidemic?'
So Gangakhedkar said, "This fear will persist until the scope of vaccination increases significantly. According to research, the omicron form has the ability to spread rapidly and even avoids vaccine-induced immunity. He also said, "In such situations, if more and more people are infected, the virus will move forward. The more chance we give the virus, the more it will spread.''
