Question from Martin
Is it true that 100% of pollution in the marine alps is caused by the omicron variable?
Good evening Martin,
It’s a question that falls under the assumption you put us there. It is currently impossible to answer this question: Omicron monitoring data from Public Health France is not available, but the good news is that it should be in a few days. “After a transitional phase, a new screening strategy is published, which makes it possible to accurately detect suspected cases of Omicron infection, since December 20, 2021. As a result, new screening indicators will be released. Data starting from January 2022.”, stands for Public Health France.
So to estimate that 100% of the contamination might be due to the Omicron variable, in that sense, “A little bit of adventure”.
If the data is not yet known to everyone, we do know, however, that the variant is under scrutiny by health authorities. “In the context of the circulation of the absolute majority of the delta variant, as has been observed in France since the summer, viruses that do not carry any of these three mutations are in the minority, allowing, by elimination, to suspect a possible case of the Omicron variant.”, Also enlighten us health authorities.
The majority of OmiCron is in France, but…
According to the latest statement from the authorities, we can read that, in fact, the Omicron variant has become the majority: “62.4% of the tests examined showed a profile compatible with the Omicron variant at the start of W52”And Refers to Public Health France. These numbers are those of the entire French territory, which is an average between the hardest-hit regions such as the Paris region and others.
Local data is not currently available. Information on this point is therefore guesswork. However, what is known is that patients currently in intensive care are patients with the delta variant.
