Omicron seems more transmissible but less severe than other variants, further research needed: WHO Updated: 2021-12-09 08:32:56 KST

The WHO has given its backing to the theory that Omicron is more transmissible, but less severe than other variants of COVID-19.
The agency's health emergencies chief Michael Ryan said to AFP that preliminary data doesn't show Omicron to be more severe than other strainslike Delta.
The head of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, also cited studies from South Africa that found people who contracted Omicron had much milder symptoms than those with Delta.
However, they both stressed further research is needed.
