Covid: WHO, possible serious consequences from Omicron – World variant

The whole world fears the advance of the Omicron variant, which in a few days since its discovery in South Africa has already crossed the borders of several continents, from Europe to Australia.

“It is a race against time” to understand more and adopt the right countermeasures, underlines the president of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen while London, the current president of the G7, has called for today an “emergency meeting” of the Group health ministers.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the Omicron variant of the coronavirus could have “serious consequences”: reports Sky News.

The specter of yet another acceleration of the pandemic is bringing back restrictions and armored borders that it was hoped had been archived after the annus horribilis of 2020 even if the variant, according to the president of South African doctors, although very contagious seems to present mild symptoms, especially on vaccinated people.

However, the countries that choose to arm themselves are multiplying. The last, in chronological order, is Japan which will close its borders to all foreign visitors. The Japanese government announced this today, just three weeks after loosening some restrictions to allow foreign business travelers, students and interns to enter the country.
