Around the globe

Over 5,769,241 individuals have died because of the virus after infecting over 398,240,480 people worldwide. The extremely contagious Omicron version of COVID-19, which was first discovered in South Africa, is spreading throughout the globe. Even though the new coronavirus variant has been rated less lethal than previous incarnations, health experts have underlined that even a “moderate” infection might be debilitating and advised individuals to exercise caution, wear masks, and avoid big gatherings.

According to the World Health Organization, developed nations should stop hoarding vaccines in excess of their needs and share them with developing countries, stressing that deploying vaccine boosters for those who have already been immunised does nothing to prevent the mutation of new variants in populations that have not been vaccinated. Overall, 317,751,963 of the 398.2 million+ people affected have been able to return to their pre-infection status.
