The new Omicron covid variant has been making headlines all over the place. Just the other day, we revealed that the Omicron covid variant is the new threat that’s lurking around the corner all over the world.
As if the novel coronavirus did not cause enough pain and drama, new variants continue to emerge.
It’s been just revealed by BBC that Israel is to ban foreigners from entering the country for 14 days and use surveillance to halt the spread of the new Covid variant, local media report.
Omicron covid variant could bring positive news
City AM notes that hospitals and GPs across Southern Africa are increasingly reporting that the symptoms of the aggressive new Covid strain Omicron are “unusual but very mild,” according to various media in South Africa this weekend.
“Around 90 percent of all new infections in the Johannesburg region are now caused by the Omicron strain but, so far, the Covid death rate and even hospital admissions appear not to be increasing significantly,” local media report.
The same online publication mentioned above notes that some experts are therefore cautiously optimistic about the following issue:
“– if Omicron turns out to be less lethal but more contagious and dominant than the Delta variant – the new mutation may actually be a blessing in the sky.”
