A good number of countries have now temporarily suspended their international flights to and from several South African countries upon the recent awakening of the new Corona virus variant named: Omicron Variant.
The world health organisation has come out and assured the public that it'll take time to understand how the virus will or may affect the diagonistics, therapeutics and vaccines.
As calls to get vaccinated in Kenya have been made mandatory, the news of the new virus will for sure take centre stage many asking whether they are safe from any further infections and for those ones that haven't been vaccinated or taken their second jabs will for sure reconsider their options.
On the other hand Kenyans in the internet have come out calling for the government to suspend it's flights from Southern Africa but the government has inturn issued a statement saying at the moment they aren't interested in doing so as they have proper layed procedures to deal with the unending pandemic.
The list of symptoms the lists includes fever or chills, a cough, fatigue, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or a runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.
There is currently no information to suggest that symptoms associated with Omicron are different from those from other variants, evidence suggests there may be an increased risk of reinfection with Omicron on people who have previously had COVID-19.
At the moment researchers all over the world are doing their best to understand the dynamics sorroundig the new virus which seem to be taking nations by storm. More information on this will become available in the coming days and weeks the WHO assured the public.
