By mid-January, the Omicron strain of coronavirus will become the dominant variant in 27 European countries.
According to AP, this statement was made by the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.
According to her, the EU is well prepared to fight Omicron, as 66.6% of the population is fully vaccinated. She is also disappointed that the pandemic will again interfere with the New Year's celebration.
“Like many of you, I am sad that this Christmas will be darkened by the pandemic again,” Leyen said.
