“This is good news”: Marc Van Ranst and Emmanuel André confident about the Omicron variant

While the Omicron variant is now dominant in our country with more than 60% of contaminations, studies on this variant are continuing and good news is appearing. If the number of coronavirus contaminations continues to drop every day in our territory, experts believe that it will start again in the coming days with the emergence of the Omicron variant considered to be more contagious than the Delta variant.

The good news is that the Omicron variant appears to make those affected less sick. “Young people suffer no or less from coronavirus infections with the Omicron variant. We will have to wait and see what it does to the elderly, who are treated well in our country.“Marc Van Ranst told HLN Live.”Omicron tends to bind to receptors in the upper airways more often, while the delta variant and other variants have occupied receptors in the lower airways, deep in the lungs.
