The World Health Organization (WHO) says the new Omicron strain of the coronavirus is spreading very fast. Omicron variant has been found in about 77 countries. However, it is spreading at a rapid rate. The World Health Organization fears that it will spread all over the world very soon.

The Omicron variant was caught in South Africa. Then it is slowly spreading worldwide. Studies have shown that vaccines against Omicron variant have been developed. Pfizer vaccine efficacy works 30% against Omicron variant.
Expert opinion on Omicron variant
The virus cannot be completely stopped just by maintaining max and social distance. However, it reduces the pressure on the health system around the world. This was stated by Dr. Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Health Emergency Program.
Tedros said that if rich countries introduced booster doses to their adult populations, the inequality of the vaccine would increase worldwide. However, it can be seen by reviewing from the point of view of priority. Those who have not yet received the booster vaccine should be given the booster vaccine.
A report on Tuesday in France found that 83,405 people had been diagnosed with the new coronavirus. About 70% of the population has been vaccinated since April.
Scientists estimate that the actual number of people infected by Omicron in Britain could be as high as 200,000 per day and that reports from English Premier League record cascades could hurt even more.
At least 53,11,914 people have died and 27,00,68,257 have been infected with the COVID-19 epidemic, according to AFP data from official sources on Tuesday.
Many people think that the omicron variant is going to scare the whole world again because of the new look. So everyone should be careful.
Tests have shown that the omicron variant has a much higher diffusion capacity than the covid-19. Therefore, many companies are developing new vaccines against the omicron variant.
Of these, the vaccine against the omicron variant made by Pfizer has been shown to work 30%, which did not give a good result. That is why we should be careful.
He further added that the priority of every country and the world should be to protect the least secure, not the most secure.
He shared information on vaccination: 41 countries have not yet been able to vaccinate 10% of their population. And 98 countries have not yet reached 40% of the vaccine.
