WHO Warns Of ‘Very High’ Risk Of Global Spread Of Omicron Variant

 The World Health Organization says the new omicron variant has a “very high” risk of spreading globally

And it apparently could have potentially “severe” consequences. Officials say “unprecedented” mutations could mean the virus spreads more easily and possibly escapes immunity – though we still don’t know the extent of what the variant is capable of. The variant was first detected in South Africa but may have already spread to more than a dozen countries.

No cases have been reported so far in the U.S. Will this omicron variant end up affecting holiday travel plans?
