Omicron variant more fast in transmission-WHO Chief Scientist

World Health Organization chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan has urged people not to panic over the appearance of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. 

At the next conference on Friday, the right response was to be prepared, careful and not panic with the new variant.

“How worried should we be? We need to be prepared and cautious, not panic, because we’re in a different situation to a year ago,” Swaminathan said.

The emergence of the new variant was unwelcome, she said, but added that the world was much better prepared given the development of vaccines since the start of the pandemic.
