“More spread of the variant refers to more deaths. We are not saying that the other nations to resume the lockdown. Still, we want the nation’s authorities to protect the individuals by using all the necessary equipment required and not treating vaccination as the only tool to protect the people from the COVID variant. This infection is dangerous.” The World Health Organisation is figuring out which sub-lineages of the Omicron variant are of concern, including the new variant of COVID-19-BA.2.
