WHO: Omicron may spread more in Europe

The World Health Organization says no one has died from a new strain of the coronavirus, Omicron. Currently, the strain is detected in 38 countries, the Daily Mail writes.

WHO has warned that it may take several weeks to determine this variant's contagiousness. Also, scientists need to determine if it causes a more severe course of the disease and how effective the medications and vaccines against it are.

The organization has not received any information about the death caused by "Omicron." However, due to the active spread of a new variant of the virus, scientists predict that "Omicron" may account for more than half of the new cases of COVID-19 in Europe in the next few months.

The World Health Organization has named a new variant of the coronavirus found in South Africa "Omicron." "Omicron" is the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet (Ο). British scientists have discovered a new dangerous strain of COVID. Although it is not yet widespread, it is more dangerous than previous strains and resistant to vaccines.
