“Based on this information, it seems that the WHO is looking at the COVID-19 virus in 2022, not stopping at Omikron.
Interestingly, the WHO thinks the virus will continue to change and that the VOC virus that will replace Omikron will be more fit to the host, not necessarily a less virulent virus. less severe (could be more or less severe), and more importantly, the virus tends to escape immunity (further immune escape).
The WHO believes that the main driving force behind the virus’s adaptation is due to the increased immunity among the human population from vaccines. and natural infections The virus needs to survive by adapting to escape those landscapes.
WHO predicts that vaccines will need to be adjusted for sure. to adapt to the changing virus Up to the point that current vaccines have become far less effective. How often will the vaccine be adjusted, every year or every few years has not yet been decided.
