Coronavirus: Mistakes that are making you prone to COVID-19 complications | The Times of India

As of now, most cases of Omicron infection are said to be mild. Given that people infected with the new variant have reported cold-like symptoms, people believe it can be easily managed and tackled.

However, experts warn against taking the ‘variant of concern’ lightly. The WHO in a recent update said that the Omicron variant could pose ‘very high’ risk and overwhelm the healthcare system.

Additionally, health officials have urged people to take all precautionary measures and warned against undermining the new variant just yet. In a tweet, WHO epidemiologist Dr Maria Van Kerkhove said, “While some reports show a reduced risk of hospitalisation of Omicron compared to Delta, there are still far too many people infected, in hospital sick and dying from Omicron (and Delta).

As of now, the UK has reported about 14 deaths due to Omicron, while the US and South Korea have seen one death each. However, it is to note that the deaths occurred mostly in unvaccinated persons.
