Omicron variant: New variant seems to be fast replacing Delta – how worried should we be?

This hasn’t been a deliberate strategy by South Africa, it’s just happened because Omicron is much more transmissible.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that Omicron has a “growth advantage” in comparison to Delta.

Furthermore, virologist Marc van Ranst has said that if it is the case that Omicron is more transmissible but less deadly and results in less severe illness, then it could be a, “storm in a teacup”.

This new information will make the United Kingdom’s position that much harder, particularly as we approach Christmas.
