Singapore among the first countries to not consider Omicron a national threat: Professor Fisher

(Gurdeep Singh)

Singapore, Dec 29 (PTI) Singapore is one of the first countries to recognize that Omicron is not a national threat, as a large part of the population, Professor Dale Fisher, Senior Consultant Professor in the National University Hospital’s Division of Infectious Diseases, said. Vaccination is done.

‘The Strait Times’ newspaper quoted Fischer in a study conducted by several health experts on the new form of the virus here as saying that Singapore is formulating a strategy to deal with Covid in such a way that if new forms do appear, they will be much easier. can be dealt with.”

Fischer said the number of re-hospitalization patients is increasing in some countries because Omicron is more contagious and the population’s baseline immunity is still low.

Professor Paul Tambyah, President of the ‘Asia Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection’, said, “Now that we know that the Omicron form is probably less infectious than the previous dominant forms, we can look at other potentially fatal infectious diseases such as tuberculosis or influenza.” Like a respiratory infection, we can move towards the treatment of Covid.

But it was prudent and important not to allow Omicron cases to rise over the past month, Fischer said, giving the country time and helping science to understand concerns about the redesign.

Experts say dealing with Omicron after a long and hard battle with Delta is harmful to people’s mental and physical health.

As such, it is reasonable not to consider the Omicron form different from other existing and previous forms because evidence has shown that the new form is likely to be more contagious but less severe than the delta form.
