Omicron, the recently discovered variant of coronavirus, has made governments across the world anxious because of its rapid transmissible nature. The World Health Health Organization has already declared the Omicron Covid-19 variant ‘a variant of concern’. The variant has sparked fears for the fight against the nearly two-year-old coronavirus pandemic. As a result, a dozen of countries have brought the shutters down to contain the new phase of the pandemic.

Preliminary evidence suggests there may be an increased risk of reinfection with Omicron (ie, people who have previously had COVID-19 could become reinfected more easily with Omicron), as compared to other variants of concern, but information is limited.
According to the WHO findings, there may be an increased risk of reinfection with Omicron (i.e., people who have previously had COVID-19 could become reinfected more easily with Omicron), as compared to other variants of concern.
The global heath body said it is trying to understand the potential impact of this variant on existing countermeasures, including vaccines. “Vaccines remain critical to reducing severe disease and death, including against the dominant circulating virus, Delta. Current vaccines remain effective against severe disease and death.”
