According to the American newspaper, “The New York Times”, health officials in South Africalikely to be a wave.OmicronThe current has reached its peak, which means that the new mutant reaches its maximum range in a shorter period.

The researchers stated that the “Omicron” mutant led to a decrease in the percentage of people infected with the Corona virus who needed hospitalization, while they made it clear that it was a matter of proportion, not number.

But the failure to enter a large proportion of “Omicron” patients to hospitals may be due to the vaccination rate in the countries included in the study, especially in England and Scotland, or the acquisition of immunity due to previous infections.
