Omicron

The Omicron variant has spread worldwide rapidly and is now the major variant in many countries. Omicron is much more transmissible than previous variants of the COVID-19 virus, including Delta. However, as the Omicron variant is so new, more data is needed to understand how Omicron has spread so rapidly across the world.
