The virus has already put a strain on global movement with countries closing their borders.
The health authorities and scientists are also concerned that it may be more lethal.
Omicron is dangerous than all other variants of Covid-19. The variant is relatively new. But, it has literally shocked the world. The reason is pretty simple. It is more lethal; dangerous in many terms. It can spread fast and affect a human body without giving any signals. The first variant of Covid-19 came up with clear symptoms in the body. A number of symptoms included fever, flu, headaches and most important loss of smell or taste. The Delta variant which appeared in early 2021 was also dangerous. The people who got infected with Delta variant did not show much symptoms. They would show up with heavily damaged lungs and people were in a condition where they could not recover. And yes, the vaccines were helpful for the Delta variant of Covid-19.
On the other hand, the Omicron Variant is very dangerous due to several reasons. The doctors say that it spreads super fast. They claim that it is back this time with more energy, tactics and camouflage. The patients don’t cough, there is no fever. On the other hand, it’s joint pain, weakness, loss of appetite and Covid pneumonia, of course. Resultantly, the death rate is higher, it takes less time to get to the extreme. Most dangerously, there are no symptoms in many patients. Moreover, the strain is not domiciled in our nasopharyngeal region. It directly affects the lungs, which means window periods are shortened.
