What you need to know about the coronavirus pandemic on 6TH December 2021

Scientists from the World Health Organization have urged individuals not to panic over the emergence of the Omicron coronavirus variant. They have said it was too early to say if COVID-19 vaccines would have to be modified to fight it at the Reuters Next conference.

Omicron, the newest addition to the list of Covid-19 variants was detected in November in South Africa and has been detected in more than 10 countries including the United States (which reported its first case on the first day of December).

Since a lockdown for the season is uncertain, we urge you to get tested by purchasing your test kits from Covid test London

The following are news about Covid 19 from all over the world

  1. World Health Organization (WHO) advised Asia-Pacific countries on Friday to boost their healthcare capacity and fully vaccinate their inhabitants to get ready for a surge in COVID-19 cases as the Omicron variant dissipates globally despite travel curbs.
  2. Australia has become the latest country to document community transmission of the new variant as Omicron gained a foothold in Asia this week, with cases reported in the countries; India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and South Korea
  3. European Union’s agency for public health said that the Omicron variant could be accountable for more than half of all COVID-19 infections in Europe within a few months. The conclusion could lend weight to preliminary data about the very high transmissibility of the Omicron variant which may supersede that of the Delta variant.
  4. Swiss cantons of Geneva and Vaud placed 2,000 people into quarantine after two cases of the Omicron variant were discovered at an international school. Authorities at Geneva have classified Omicron as a SARS-CoV-2 “variant of concern” as it has confirmed a case in an individual who had returned from South Africa and another suspected case linked to the same individual
  5. The health ministry in India expects the Omicron variant of coronavirus to cause less severe disease due to vaccinations and high prior exposure to the Delta variant that infected nearly 70% of the population in July. They have confirmed that as many as 84% of their population have received at least one vaccine dose.
  6. South Africa Health Minister, Joe Phaahla has confirmed that South Africa is being hit by the fourth wave of COVID-19 infections driven by the Omicron variant which has been detected in seven of the country’s nine provinces.
  7. According to data from their state institute between 21-25 November, Ghana has detected the Omicron coronavirus variant in 34 samples from travellers who returned to the country but did not say how many cases had been identified.
  8. According to Zheng Zhongwei, by rapidly pushing forward the research and development of Omicron-specific vaccines based on different technologies, China is accelerating research and development of COVID-19 vaccines targeting the Omicron variant.
  9. Germany has announced restrictions on the unvaccinated as it aims to break a dramatic surge in daily coronavirus infections heightened by the discovery of the Omicron strain.
  10. Last Thursday, US President Joe Biden laid out his strategy to fight the Omicron and Delta coronavirus variants over the winter. This strategy includes the distribution of free and insurer-funded, at-home COVID-19 testing and the creation of new requirements for international travellers.

In conclusion, while the news from around the world may seem disturbing, as governments are working towards keeping their inhabitants safe,  individuals must contribute their quota by maintaining social distancing, washing their hands, sanitizing, wearing a mask and observing all travel protocols.
