“No, the virus will continue to circulate the more possibilities available to change it,” said Maria Van Kerkhove, the technical director of emergency programs at the organization and infectious disease expert, in an interview with the “Science in 5 Minutes” program, which searches on the organization’s website.

Van Kerkhove stressed that “Omicron” will not be a final version of the virus, and it is very likely in the future that new versions will appear that will cause concern.

She explained that the features of the new strains are not currently known, but stressed that “they will undoubtedly be more contagious because they will have to bypass the copies currently circulating.”

She added that these new copies, which are expected to appear, will be able to cause more or less severe disease cases, but they will be able to circumvent the immune protection.

The health official also stressed that the “Omicron” mutant should not be considered a “weak” version, indicating that it was “still dangerous,” despite reports that infections with it generally provoke a less dangerous course of the disease.
