Omicron may be the first ray of hope against Covid British scientist says Omicron may be the first ray of hope against Covid

Digital Desk, London. A UK scientist says that the more infectious but less severe Omicron variant could be the first ray of hope in dealing with the corona epidemic in the future.

In the future, it may exist as a less severe corona virus like the common cold virus.

Dr Mike Tildesley, member of the Scientific Epidemic Influenza Group Modeling (SPI-M) and Professor at the University of Warwick, told the newspaper The Guardian that Omicron could be an indicator that people may be living with COVID as a localized disease. .

Times Radio quoted him as saying but as the cases of Kovid in the UK continue to rise and the number of people currently hospitalized is the highest in almost a year. What may happen in the future is that you may see a new corona variant that is less severe but can persist in the local population for a longer period of time.

Ultimately, in the long term, what happens is that covid becomes endemic and has a reduced fatality and may be similar to the common cold virus we have been living with for many years.

He added that perhaps Omicron is the first ray of hope that suggests this could happen in the long term. It is certainly much more contagious than Delta, but much less serious.

According to government data, a total of 18,454 people in UK hospitals were diagnosed with COVID-19 on 6 January, a week-on-week increase of 40 per cent and the highest number since February 18 last year.

Meanwhile, the Joint Committee on Immunization and Immunization recommends not giving a second booster, or fourth dose, of the vaccine to country residents and caregivers over the age of 80, while figures suggest it may reduce hospital admissions. was 90 percent effective in stopping.

Now experts want to prioritize the introduction of the first booster dose and encourage those who are still not given the first and second doses.
