The ommicron variant is still spreading across the United States, but there has been much confusion about whether the virus will prevent mild or severe infection.
news: Dr. Rochelle Wallinsky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said last week that calling Omicron “mild” is not fair, because “mild” infection does not always mean “mild,” as it was reported in Desert News.
- Most importantly, the word “milder” does not mean “moderate.” And we can’t see beyond the strain on our health systems and the large number of deaths – roughly 2,200 per day from the highly transmissible omicron variant,” she told Fox News.
Risks: A person’s risk may depend on age, with hospital admissions being three times higher for those over 50, according to NPR.
- There are high levels of immunity to vaccination and previous infection.
- “Other key factors for reducing disease severity include acquired immunity to infection and possibly reduced virulence of the omicron variant,” the researchers said in data recently published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Another danger: There is also a long-term risk of COVID-19, which occurs when people have long-term symptoms of COVID-19. A new study from Israel finds that long-term symptoms of COVID-19 are less likely in fully vaccinated people, but can still occur in both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people, it reported to Desert News.
- “This is another reason to get vaccinated, if you need to,” said study co-author Michael Edelstein, an epidemiologist at Bar-Ilan University in Safed, Israel, according to Natuur.com.
