Omicron: What we know about the heavily-mutated COVID-19 variant so far

Infectious diseases expert Dr. Isaac Bogoch answers the top questions about the heavily-mutated COVID-19 variant called Omicron and its potential threat to the pandemic.

Is it more transmissible than the Delta variant? To what extent are the symptoms different or similar to other variants of concern? Does it erode the immunity of COVID-19 vaccines? How does this relate to the issue of global vaccine inequity?

As Bogoch explains, this new variant won’t set us back to square one.

"People are treating this like it’s a brand new pandemic. It’s not. Let’s just approach this with a healthy respect by being humble and with an empiric approach. We’ll get through this."
