The Omicron coronavirus strain has already been found in 77 countries. This was stated by the Director General of the World Health Organization Tedros Ghebreyesus.
The WHO website reports that the Omicron strain is already present in most countries of the world.
& quot; Currently 77 countries have reported cases of the Omicron strain, and the reality is that it is probably already in most countries, even if it has not yet been recorded, '' said Gebreisus.
He noted that even if the strain causes the milder course of the disease, then most countries will find it difficult to do without quarantine restrictions.
“I have to be very frank: vaccines alone will not lift any country out of this crisis. Countries can and should prevent the spread of the Omicron strain with the restrictive measures in place today, '' said the head of WHO.
