Tracking Omicron and Other Coronavirus Variants
People infected with the omicron variant of the novel coronavirus may have a tendency to show mild or no symptoms, although the variant’s infectiousness could be stronger than that of the delta variant, according to experts.
Experts are rushing to analyze the omicron variant after many reports that people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 were infected with the variant.
According to the European Union’s European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, 109 cases of infection with the omicron variant had been found in 16 countries as of Friday, and all of the infected people showed mild or no symptoms, with no reports of death.
“Breakthrough infections can occur with the delta variant. We need to examine the situation a little further in order to figure out if vaccines are less effective” against the omicron variant, compared with the delta variant, Wakita said.

Tracking the Omicron Variant
Cases of the omicron variant of the coronavirus have been detected in countries on opposite sides of the world, just days after it was first identified by researchers in South Africa. While many governments rushed to close their borders, scientists cautioned that it’s not clear if the new variant is more alarming than other versions of the virus.
