digital desk, New Delhi. Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates has warned that the Omicron variant is spreading rapidly around the world. With this, people can now enter the worst part of the pandemic and the Omicron variant is about to knock on all of us.
Gates tweeted that he has canceled most of his vacation plans because his close friends are increasingly infected with the coronavirus.
Gates tweeted late Tuesday, “Just when life looked like life would return to normal, we’re about to enter the worst part of the pandemic.” Omicron will deliver to all of us at home. My close friends are getting infected with Corona and I have canceled most of my vacation plans.
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Grebreyesus has already said that it is better to end the holidays than to end the life cycle.
Omicron cases are spreading rapidly in the US. So far, 73 percent of the new cases of Omicron have been reached.
Gates said, the Omicron variant is spreading faster than the earlier coronavirus variant. It will soon engulf every country in the world.
He posted, it is not yet revealed to what extent Omicron can make you sick. We need to take this seriously until more information comes out about it. Even though it is less lethal than the delta variant, its knock has led to a rapid jump in corona cases.
There are more than 37,000 confirmed cases of Omicron in the UK so far, with most cases detected in the past two-three days and 12 deaths.
In India, the Union Health Ministry said on Tuesday that the new corona variant Omicron is three times more contagious than the delta variant.
Gates said in a tweet, ‘Some months may be bad, but I believe that if we take the right steps, the Pandemic can be over in 2022.
