Variants were launched in South Africa
Let us tell you that this virus was detected only last week. This variant was introduced in South Africa. However, the speed of its spread is faster than other variants and it has spread to the entire 13 countries in a few days. Due to not much information about this new variant at the moment, it is becoming difficult to stop it and it is infecting the vaccinated people. Cases of being infected with Omicron variants have been confirmed in many continents. Cases have also been reported in Germany, Italy, Belgium, Israel and Hong Kong.
