Omicron, the recently discovered variant of coronavirus, has made governments across the world anxious because of its rapid transmissible nature. The World Health Health Organization has already declared the Omicron Covid-19 variant ‘a variant of concern’. The variant has sparked fears for the fight against the nearly two-year-old coronavirus pandemic. As a result, a dozen of countries have brought the shutters down to contain the new phase of the pandemic.

At present, WHO is coordinating with a large number of researchers around the world to better understand Omicron. Studies currently underway or underway shortly include assessments of transmissibility, the severity of infection (including symptoms), the performance of vaccines and diagnostic tests, and the effectiveness of treatments.
