By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Approximately 25 states of the United States have reported the presence of the highly mutated and contagious Omicron variant of COVID-19, while Delta cases rise.
According to CNBC, the Omicron variant has been detected in several southern US states. Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, and Florida have all confirmed cases of the highly mutated Omicron variant of Covid-19.
The detection in half the Unites States happens as the new variant spreads across the world after being detected in South Africa last month.
It also comes amidst the rise in cases over the last few weeks in the United States which is still reporting 99 % of its cases are from the Delta variant. Infections have pushed over 100,000 per day, an increase of 23% since before Thanksgiving.
Omicron, according to many reports worldwide, is more contagious but milder than Delta. However, scientists say it’s too early to say exactly how it will impact the world.
