 Omicron: The last wave of the corona pandemic?  Possoch clarifies!


What the investigation into the omicron hotspot in Oslo also seems to show: Vaccination obviously no longer makes much difference to the infection itself. In fact, the omicron variant exhibits an immune escape. That doesn’t mean it completely bypasses the immune system, however, or that a vaccine has become useless, as the new Possoch clarifies (video above) points out. Data from the UK also show that vaccination continues to make the crucial difference in hospitalization and death.

2022: The last year of the pandemic?

Due to these properties of the Omikron variant of Corona, there is just the thought game that Omikron can be the exit ticket. The only question is: at what price? For one, data from the US shows that in cities first hit by omicron, death tolls follow case counts. Even with a lower death rate, given the sheer volume of omicron cases, this can be devastating. On the other hand, the risk of Long Covid cannot be ruled out even in the case of an omicron infection with a mild course, as a study by the Hamburg-Eppendorf University Hospital shows.

“We all hope and believe that 2022 will be the last year of the pandemic. But it will not be the last year in which we worry about corona viruses.” Ulrike Protzer, Professor of Virology at the Technical University of Munich

In the video above you can find out everything you should know about the Omikron variant and the question of vaccination protection, the course of the disease and the end of the pandemic. Feel free to discuss in the comments.
