A recent study revealed that the new Corona virus “Omicron” mutant is 4.2 times more transmissible in its early stage compared to the globally prevalent “delta” mutant.
The study, led by Japanese scientist advising the government, Hiroshi Nishiura, a professor of health and environmental sciences at Kyoto University who specializes in mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, analyzed genome data available as of November 26 in South Africa in Gauteng province.
Global Health: The “Omicron” mutant has appeared in 57 countries and will cause an increase in critical cases
Nishiura’s study has not been reviewed or published in a scientific journal, but the new analysis was conducted using the same method as a study published in July by the medical journal Euro Survival on expected delta dominance ahead of the Tokyo Olympics.
There is widespread fear that Omicron could deal the world an even bigger blow than Delta, and the World Health Organization has warned that it could lead to “serious consequences”.
