As scientists around the world explore the new Omicron variant of Covid-19, a study has found that the new variant is more contagious than the Delta and Beta variants.
An initial study by South African scientists released on Thursday found that the Omicron variant causes three times more re-infections than other types, such as the deadly delta.
The findings of South African scientists are based on data collected by the country’s health system. These findings are the first epidemiological evidence that the Omicron variant overcomes the body’s immunity to other infections before the Omicron infection strikes. It is noteworthy that the report of this finding has not yet been fully reviewed.
