Omicron variant latest – Frankenstein covid strain will ‘dominate and overwhelm’ world within 6 months, doctor warns

According to a Singapore-based infectious disease doctor, omicron, the new Covid variant will ‘dominate and overwhelm’ the world in the coming months.

It has been reported that in 3-6 months the variant will become dominant, with the hope that vaccines can be developed quickly.

The vaccines need to be tested over three to six months to prove that they can provide immunity against the variant, Dr. Leong Hoe Nam said Wednesday.

“But frankly, omicron will dominate and overwhelm the whole world in three to six months,” he told CNBC.

Meanwhile, millions of vaccines for future Covid booster campaigns have been secured – as it was claimed nearly 800,000 cancer patients were “missed” during the pandemic.

Some scientists have suggested that Covid-19 will need to be kept at bay with repeated vaccination campaigns while others have said it is too early to tell whether annual boosters will be needed.
