WHO: the omicron strain can infect people who have previously been ill with COVID-19
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a high risk of infection – a strain of the coronavirus of people who have previously had COVID-19. This is reported by TASS.
At the same time, the organization noted that information on this matter is still “limited.”
Earlier, the WHO evaluated the effectiveness of vaccines against the omicron strain of coronavirus. The existing drugs are effective against the new COVID-19 variant, according to the statement. At the same time, there is not enough information for statements that the omicron is more dangerous than the delta strain of the virus, the WHO stressed. The WHO also noted that it is still not clear whether this strain is more transmissible, whether it leads to a more severe course of the disease and whether its symptoms differ from other known variants of the disease.
