Preliminary studies published in the UK and South Africa indicate that symptoms caused by the Omigran variant appear to be less severe.

Preliminary evidence indicates that fewer individuals need hospital treatment to deal with the virus, with a reduction of 30% to 70% compared to other types.

However, despite Omigran being mild, there are still concerns that the growing number of cases is high A Hospitals.

For the first time since the outbreak, more than 100,000 cases were reported in the UK in a single day.
