Traveling before Christmas, according to leading American pathologist Anthony Fauci, will boost the possibilities of transmitting the omicron strain, even to people who have had two doses of vaccination.
“There’s no doubt about Omicron, and that strain has the potential to be exceedingly infectious,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said on NBC’s Sunday Morning.
The Omicron strain, according to Dr. Anthony, who has been advising the US government on corona, is spreading swiftly over the world.
Due to the spread of the highly mutated Omicron, several countries are ramping up their healthcare efforts.
France and Germany are expected to introduce travel restrictions across Europe. In the Netherlands, a strict restriction has been enforced ahead of the Christmas holidays.
According to studies, injecting an additional booster dosage can reduce the risk of severe disease by up to 85%. Since then, several governments have been pushing to accelerate the booster program’s implementation.
Only around 3% of patients infected with coronavirus in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are infected with Omicron strain, the majority of whom are from New York State.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has stated that the fast-spreading Omicron strain in the United States will have a significant influence on US health systems in this context.
“If the situation continues as it is, our hospitals will be under a great deal of stress,” he warned.
Dr. Antony also recommended that people take precautions such as wearing a face mask and maintaining social boundaries. He also urged Americans to pay for their vaccinations and booster shots.
“The difference between two vaccination doses and a booster dosage is that if one individual is not vaccinated and gets corona, the disease presents a significant risk,” he stated.
Anthony Fauci had previously stated at a White House press briefing last Friday that people who had not been vaccinated were at a higher risk of having coronavirus illness and hospitalization.
According to Anthony Fauci, those who do not get vaccinated have a greater chance of acquiring coronavirus infection and are more likely to be hospitalized.
“It’s really important to get completely vaccinated… being fully vaccinated and receiving a booster dose will provide complete protection,” he added.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 73% have received at least one dose of the vaccine. An additional 30% is paying for the booster shot.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Omicron strain is responsible for just approximately 3% of coronavirus infections in the United States, with the majority of cases occurring in New York State.
Since the corona outbreak began, more than 5 million people in the United States have been infected with the virus. More than 8 lakh people have died as a result of the crisis.
