The UN health agency said it will be necessary to wait another two weeks to learn more about Omicron transmission, while scientists researched the new strain, even more contagious than Delta, according to preliminary data.

WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier stressed they opposes general travel bans, except in case of countries whose health systems cannot withstand an increased number of infections.

“It is better to prepare the hospital network and health systems of each country for possible cases. We are quite sure this new variant will spread,” he warned.

Delta mutation, called as “variant of concern” in summer, is now the one spreading the most around the world, Lindmeier added.

Let’s not be deterred and focus on getting as much information as possible to deal with this mutation, he explained.
