On November 26th the World Health Organization held an emergency meeting and decided to list B.1.1.1.529, the new strain of the new coronavirus reported in South Africa two days earlier, as the highest-grade "noteworthy" strain and named Omicron.

Why is the Omicron variant more dangerous? Based on current information, experts believe that the new variant of the new coronavirus is contagious or stronger than the Delta strain, and is likely to make most vaccines less effective.

South Africa first reported the Omicron (B.1.1.529) infection to the agency on November 24, but the first known strain of infection came from a specimen collected in the country on November 9, according to the WHO statement. Reported that in recent weeks, South Africa's new crown virus infections have increased sharply, both consistent with the detected variant B.1.1.529. At the same time, the number of cases of the B.1.1.529 variant is increasing in almost all provinces of the country.

New York Governor Kathy Middot Hohull declared a "catastrophic state of emergency" for the state's new crown outbreak on Tuesday, as infection and hospitalization rates for the new coronavirus rose, as well as concerns about the newly discovered Omicron variant, NBC 4 reported. The statement will take effect on December 3.
