Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said that the Omicron variant of Covid-19 appears to be milder than previous strains, but it also appears to spread faster and could lead to more mutations in the future. “I don’t think it’s good news to have something that spreads fast,” Bourla told the Wall Street Journal. “It spreads rapidly and that means it will be in the billions of people and another mutation could occur. We would not like this, ”continued the CEO, saying that based on data from South Africa it is difficult to draw conclusions as only 5% of South Africans are over 60 and younger people usually have milder cases of Covid. However, many South Africans are also HIV-positive and this will lead to aggravation for those who contract Covid. Bourla expects the number of confirmed Omicron cases to increase from tens to millions in the coming weeks.
