Omicron latest: New variant ‘proves beneficial’ – could be just as effective as vaccines


“We have to realise that Omicron is the beginning of the end of the pandemic, because Omicron is going to provide the kind of population immunity that should stabilise our societies and should allow us to reopen,” said molecular biologist Nicanor Austriaco.

The latest figures in South Africa, and a number of other countries, may offer the rest of the world a way out of Omicron, added Salim Abdool Karim, one of South Africa’s most important infectious diseases scientists.

Karim is convinced that “every other country, or almost every other, will follow the same trajectory”.

This rings true with latest statistics showing the rate of new infections consistently dropping over the last 30 days.
