WHO Said Omicron Won't Be last COVID-19 Variant

The global COVID-19 epidemic has been raging for two years now, but the virus is constantly mutating, making the hope of an end to the epidemic increasingly elusive. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently admitted that Omicron will not be the last variant of COVID-19, and new variants may appear at any time. CNBC reported that WHO officials said on January 18 that many people believed that Omicron was the last variant of the COVID-19 virus, and then stopped there. But in fact, the more people infected, the more chance the virus has to replicate and the higher the risk of mutation. Judging from the current situation of the global epidemic, it is very likely that a new variant virus with better transmission and stronger replication will emerge. In the past week, new infections worldwide have increased by 20% from the previous week, with the total number of reported cases approaching 19 million, according to WHO data. However, WHO official Van Kerkhove pointed out that due to the large number of unreported confirmed cases, the actual number may be much higher.
