Why Omicron spreads faster than delta variant of coronavirus explained
Health experts explain why the Omicron variant of coronavirus is highly infectious
The Omicron variant of the coronavirus is spreading faster than the Delta variant. It is also more transmissible than the previous variants."There is now consistent evidence that Omicron is spreading significantly faster than the Delta variant," WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news briefing in Geneva in December. The viral load is much higher in Omicron, which means that someone infected with the Omicron variant is more infectious than someone infected with the Delta variant.
