Omikron – a new type of corona virus

A new type of corona virus, discovered in the countries of South Africa, is spreading in Europe and the world. Omicron has been recognized in more than a dozen countries around the world, including many European countries.

In the United States, the White House’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, said that a new type of coronavirus, Omicron, already exists in the United States. “Given the high prevalence of the variant, sooner or later it will spread all over the world,” he added.

Many countries have suspended flights or decided to impose strict travel restrictions on South African countries – as have the USA, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Japan, the Czech Republic, Thailand, South Korea, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Brazil, Egypt and Morocco.
