No one in the world has died from the new strain of the Omicron coronavirus.
This was announced by the World Health Organization.
Currently, this South African strain has been identified in at least 38 countries around the world. According to experts, it will continue to spread rapidly throughout Europe and around the world.
There are already 75 cases of infection in Britain, but the Delta variant still prevails in the United Kingdom. The total number of confirmed cases in England has reached 104.
Despite the relatively low infection rate and the absence of deaths, the government and scientific advisers in the UK continue to insist on the need for booster vaccinations, which are believed to provide longer lasting protection from coronavirus.
