Omicron variant live updates: Two relatives of Gujarat’s first Omicron case test Covid positive – India Times English News

United States health officials have said the Omicron version of the coronavirus is rapidly spreading across the country, with early signs suggesting it may be less dangerous than Delta, which causes hospitalizations.

Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden’s chief mediocre adviser, told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that more information is needed before scientists can draw conclusions about Omicron’s seriousness.

Reports from South Africa, where it emerged and is becoming a major strain, suggest hospitalization rates have not increased alarmingly.
