WHO says Omicron is dangerous for the Unvaccinated:- The new variant of coronavirus named Omicron is now the hot topic across the globe and the new variant is traced in all the countries of the world. Nations like USA, Spain, South Africa, UK and several European nations are badly impacted. The cases are rising on a faster note in India and the government is responding on a swift note to prevent the huge surge. There are strong talks and predictions that the spread of the Omicron variant is high but it is not dangerous. The World Health Organization told that the Omicron variant is dangerous especially for those who are not vaccinated. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Chief of World Health Organization (WHO) told this in a press conference. He said that the Omicron variant is less dangerous than Delta.
"Most of the people across the globe are unvaccinated. More than 85 percent of the people in Africa are yet to receive their first dose of coronavirus vaccine. Mass vaccination is the best way to take a control of the surge. We wanted every nation to vaccinate more than 10 percent of the population by September 2021, 40 percent by the end of 2021 and 70 percent by the mid of this year. More than 90 countries are yet to reach 40 percent of the vaccination and 36 nations are shot of 10 percent mark which is disappointing. All those who are admitted to hospitals are not vaccinated. The vaccinations are quite effective to prevent death and reduce the severity of the disease but they cannot fully prevent transmission" told Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
"If the transmission is high, the hospitalization would be high and it results in more deaths. There are 50,000 deaths per week across the globe. This should be brought to a control" told Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
