Who wants to be reassuring. ‘There is no reason to doubt’ From the fact that current vaccines protect patients with the Omicron variant from severe forms of Covid-19, it is estimated on Tuesday 7 November, Michael Ryan, head of emergencies at the World Health Organization, in an interview with AFP.
“We have very effective vaccines that have been shown to be effective against all variants thus far, in terms of disease severity and hospitalization, and there is no reason to believe that this would not be the case.” With Omicron, Dr. Ryan explained.
“The general behavior we are seeing so far does not show an increase in risk. In fact, some places in South Africa are reporting milder symptoms.”, as the doctor declared, as the eminent American scientist Anthony Fauci had said a little earlier.
“We have to be very careful in our analysis.” This data, however, said Dr. Ryan. He was keen to point out on several occasions that we were at the beginning of studies of a variant that was only discovered on November 24 by the South African authorities and has since been monitored in dozens of countries.
