Because of the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron, the number of people who are infected with COVID-19 is increasing, and the government is continuing to limit the range of our social lives. Then, what are the current situation and the symptoms of Omicron?


▲ Omicron has power propagation.

About 4000 COVID-19 cases are counted every day after the spread of Omicron. Therefore, the regulations about traveling are strengthened. People who are completely vaccinated are able to bypass self-quarantine. However, recently, all travelers should do mandatory self-quarantine. Moreover, the economy of South Korea is depressed. The most popular stocks in South Korea such as Naver, SK Hynix, and Samsung Biologics show a lower price. Additionally, in Seoul, Incheon, and Gyeonggi Province, the number of people who can meet at a time is limited to 6, and in other regions, is limited to 8.


▲ Washing hands after going out is essential.

NICD said that the symptoms of Omicron cannot be florid compared to other variants. Most people who are infected with Omicron showed a dry cough and sputum-like normal flu. If Omicron, which has a stronger propagation power than the Delta mutation, becomes the dominant species, the overall risk of COVID-19 is low. Karl Lauterbach, German clinical epidemiologist, said that Omicron may be a "Christmas gift", speeding up the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there are also criticisms that the reason the symptoms of Omicron are mild is that the people who are infected with it are mostly young. Thus, they suggest that it is difficult to generalize the symptoms, and we should deal with them carefully.


No one knows if Omicron will be a gift or a nightmare. However, it is believed that if we follow the quarantine rules well, we can overcome this COVID-19 pandemic. Then, how about practicing washing your hands after going out?
