As the world is on the verge of witnessing yet another wave of the covid-19 pandemic with Omicron BA.2 surging, the World Health Organisation said that there are misinformations brewing about the virus that is causing a lot of confusion. The WHO warning came after new infections jumped by 8% globally last week as compared to the previous week. WHO’s Mike Ryan said: “It’s moving around easily, and in the context of waning immunity and vaccines not acting perfectly against infection, the virus will likely continue to echo around the world.” He also added that one could not classify the virus as purely seasonal, and it has not adopted a predictable pattern yet. “It will be high in some parts sometimes and then move and be higher again; it will move to another area where immunity is waning. The virus will pick up pockets of susceptibility, and we will survive on those pockets for months until another pocket opens. This is how viruses work. They establish themselves in a community, and they will move quickly to the next community that’s unprotected.” he further added.
