Despite the Govt-19 infections registered in France, some hope the health crisis will end, the epidemics will end and they will return to normal life in the coming months. The reason? The Omicron variant is considered highly contagious at this stage, but is less dangerous. We explain to you.
In November 2021, the origin Variation Omicron Let the worst be feared. Very quickly, many countries chose to close their borders in the face of the threat of this new strain. However, Swica Gronot, An Israeli immunologist at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, disagreed and seemed to be going it alone at the time. ” In my opinion, this new variant may be brighter at the end of the tunnel On November 30 last he expressed hope i24News.
Today, many of them think like him and many want to believe End of Govit-19 infection Thanks Omigron. But the fact that this variation was first discovered in South Africa gives hope for why it is possible Get out of the health crisis ?
To better understand, look at the latest data available at Variation Omicron. According to many studies, Omigron There is more infection than previous variants, however Does not cause minor or severe illness. According to the professor Yazdan Yazdanpanah, Member of the Council of Science, Omigron Will be too “50 to 80% less intensity“.
Omigron: “We face a variation that is 50 to 80% less severe”
The Omigran variant marks a turning point in the evolution of this epidemic: although it is highly contagious, it can be “50 to 80% less severe,” promises Professor Yuston Yastanpana, a member of the Science Council. [Lire la suite]
Covid: According to several studies the Omigran variant is more contagious but less severe
The Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, on December 3 pointed out that the “first signals” about the Covid Omigran variant “did not show the severity of the cases compared to the delta variant”. An observation that will be confirmed by several studies published at the end of December 2021. [Lire la suite]
Faced with these results, some begin to believe. ” Maybe this is the last variation, maybe this is the last wave, maybe this wave will allow you to get some kind of immunity Announced by the Minister of Health Oliver Veron In the presence of representatives of the Assembly this January 3rd. The same hope for PR Alain Fischer Who spoke on this Monday BFMTV. According to him, Omigron is different, ” More conductive (than its predecessors, the author’s note), but less aggressive “, We are watching” May be “A” The beginning of the evolution towards the most common virus, as we know of others .
Many experts rely on it Joint immunity To place End of Govt-19 infection.
Kovit: Joint immunity soon thanks to Omigron? Oliver Veron’s Hope
Olivier Véran, in an interview with JDD, expressed his optimism about the fifth wave, which will be “perhaps the last”, thanks to the strengthened immunity of the population provided by the Omicron variant. [Lire la suite]
⁇ In the end there is hope “And” Sars-CoV-2, along with other human seasonal corona viruses, can cause us colds and tonsillitis every winter. “, The epidemiologist announced for his part Arnaud Fontaine, Professor at the Institute Pastor, in passages this Sunday JDD. ⁇ We are not there yet. We can expect new variations to emerge, but as our immunity strengthens over time, with natural infections or booster doses of the vaccine, the ability to develop severe forms will decrease. “, He estimated.
Same concept as Bruno Lina, Member of the Virologist and Scientific Council at Hospice Civils de Lyon. ” Will everyone end up with immunity from this virus? The answer is clearly yes He predicted this December 3rd France Information. ⁇ Because of mutations in the Omigron variant and the immunity we have inherited, we have been working to slightly modify the software of this virus. Admitted Professor France Information. The Variation Omicron ⁇ Upper respiratory tract (ENT) tends to give infections more easily and lung infections less. Viruses that follow Omigran are offspring, and they become seasonal He finished on Monday LCI.
Corona virus: What if the Omigron variant puts an end to the infection?
What if the omicron variant of the corona virus is supposed to end the infection? The virologist, Yves Van Laethem, argues that its high level of infection and its low virulence allow it to “immunize” those who have not been vaccinated. [Lire la suite]
And French researchers are not the only ones to believe. In Denmark, Tyra Grove Cross, Head of the epidemiology department at the National Serum Institute in Scandinavia, predicts the epidemic will end in a few months. “ I think it will take two months, after which the infection will start to subside and I hope to return to normal life. He told the channel Danish TV2. ⁇ Omicron is here to stay. This can lead to the spread of infection within the next one month. When it is over we will be in a better position than before She added.
But some doctors like to be careful. ” This epidemic shows its unpredictability. We cannot say that the epidemic is behind us after this wave Announced on December 4th BFMTV Antoine Floholt, Epidemiologist and director of the World Health Organization at the University of Geneva. ” No one expected Omigron to bang. I do not know what will happen next March “Before he was reminded that joint immunity is, he was late.” Very theoretical concept ”, Based on a mathematical formula.
⁇ I hope this will not be the last wave “For his part, he told AFP Pr this Sunday Eric Coms, Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases at La Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris. ” But this may be the end of this intensity He continued.
Another factor to consider: ” A high number of infections among the population “According to the director of the Israeli Ministry of Health, Nachman Ash. In France, electricity pollution reached a record high of 232,000 cases in 24 hours at the end of December. Also, the number of positive cases with a less serious virus, but more contagious, may automatically lead to an increase in the number of hospital admissions.
Omigron: Different views of the Institute Pastor, this variation is what we have
As Omicron spreads at lightning speed in France, Institut Pasteur has released new models that reveal various possible scenarios of the impact of the Omicron variant in France. [Lire la suite]
