Warning for the Omicron variant in the new year

The increase in positive cases for Govt-19 in Cuba in recent days has been around 450 daily in recent days from low numbers and two figures. The increase is much faster than previous variants like Delta.

All point out that this is due to the high contagion of Ómicron, which is widespread throughout Europe, and above all, the United States is currently experiencing the highest records of the epidemic.

With the opening of the Cuban border on November 15, flights are gradually being diversified and increased.

Cuban authorities also relaxed operations as soon as travelers arrived, thus halting the implementation of segregation in isolated centers and hotels, not this time, especially for those coming from certain countries in Africa and Europe.

In general, the economy and social life experienced a renaissance, cultural centers opened to the public, and bars and restaurants resumed service on their premises in addition to home delivery, which had already been advertised.

Cuba did not open its borders two months ago, thanks to the mass vaccination campaign, which greatly reduced the number of Govt-19 cases, however, தற்போதுmicron is currently trying to disrupt our national peace.

For this reason, the booster vaccine had a great impetus, with over 2 million doses used, although vaccines prevent serious disease processes, but it is not strange that they prevent infection, so taking four doses already cannot be a reason to ignore the disease. , And act in everyday life as if the plague had said goodbye, as is sadly seen today in some pubs across the island.

Five days ago, just before December 31, nearby alarms began to sound. A relative who turned positive for Govt-19 after being taken ill by a friend who fell ill a few days ago from another friend who came from abroad. Almost everyone who gathered in those days tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. They met on campus, at night, in the open air, but without distance and without such priority nasobuco.

The second alarm sounded almost simultaneously, but from different latitudes, acquaintances, friends, and relatives were struck by the situation facing the United States, and entire families lined up for nearly two days to receive the PCR test, as many were now infected with Govt-19, and the virus was already in the air. , Newspapers and street balls have created panic by claiming that it is very difficult to escape from it.

As a result, just like in 2021 we have once again gotten the start of the year of intensive care, and if we do not want to renew growth again fortunately this variant seems to be less aggressive than the delta that has killed thousands of lives in our country. . With newcomers coming from abroad, one has to be careful and wait until the symptoms appear, because even the vaccination certificates and PCR test offered here can make you more sensitive to fraud.
