It is noteworthy that Omigran has now become a worrying variant, along with variants such as alpha, beta and gamma, which are seen as dangerous in the world-dominant delta and beyond.
The virus has been found in South Africa, Botswana, Hong Kong and Israel. As it spreads from South Africa to many countries through international travel, many countries have begun to cancel flights to countries on the African continent.
And fears over the new virus have sent stock markets plummeting in many countries, including India. Variations in crude oil prices have begun. Since the corona spread began, the economy has collapsed. But after the vaccinations, economists fear that Omigron will stifle economic growth as the global economy grows again.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization says it will take several more weeks to find out if the new virus is bound to the vaccines that have already been discovered.
