WHO’s Europe chief says ‘another storm coming’ as Omicron takes hold
The Guardian says The World Health Organization’s European head has warned countries to brace for a “significant surge” in Covid-19 cases as Omicron spreads, and advised the widespread use of boosters for protection.
Since it emerged in late November, Omicron has been detected in at least 38 of the 53 countries in the WHO’s European region and is already dominant in several of them, including Denmark, Portugal and the United Kingdom, Hans Kluge told a news conference in Vienna on Tuesday.
“We can see another storm coming,” said Kluge. “Within weeks, Omicron will dominate in more countries of the region, pushing already stretched health systems further to the brink.”
