It’s hard to keep up. But new Omicron sub-variants are emerging that may lead to reinfections and another spike in cases.
Is South Africa a good comparator for how omicron will play out in the UK?
New omicron cases are doubling approximately every two days in some parts of the UK, including London.
One of the ways the Omicron variant is different from other variants is the sheer number of mutations in the spike protein. Does this make it a super-variant?
Omicron may soon arrive at the border, but New Zealand hopes to keep it out of the community through border controls, testing requirements and rapid genome sequencing of any positive cases.
How we should manage uncertainty is not a scientific issue but an ethical issue.
We won’t know whether Omicron evades COVID vaccines for another few weeks. Here’s why.
Not much data, but lessons have been learned from the slow response to delta.
It’s not spreading widely, and it’s not at Australia’s doorstep. The tools we have in place work against the coronavirus.
New variants of the COVID-19 virus may be more contagious and cause more severe disease than the original. A pediatrician and infectious disease specialist explains why.
