Studies show that people with Covid release are more likely to be infected with Omicron than in the Delta and Beta variants. Preliminary studies show that omicron is three times more likely to be present than the delta and beta variants.
The researchers based their findings on data collected by health systems in South Africa. This information, which has been uploaded to a medical preprint server, has not yet been expertly verified. It is also the first epidemiological study to refer to Omikron’s ability to overcome the immune system that has been implicated in previous infections.
However, the researchers said that their research was performed experimentally with infected cats and that those experiments did not show a mutation in the virus but did say that “such mutations cannot be ruled out.” This is what is being studied now, they said.
As of November 27, of the 2.8 million Kovid positive people, 35,670 had been infected more than once. Most people who have had a recent infection are infected with previous waves. Juliette Pullium, director of the DSI-NRF Center for Excellence in Epidemiological Modeling and Analysis in South Africa, said the Delta variety was the first to be affected.
