Britain has convened a crisis meeting of G7 group health ministers to discuss a new corona virus variant of Omigron. AFP reported on Sunday.
“The British president has convened an emergency meeting of health ministers on Monday 29 November to discuss developments around Omigran,” the UK Health Ministry said in a statement, which is currently chairing the G7, which unites the world’s most economically advanced nations.
In addition to the UK, the G7 system includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States.
Britain was one of the first European countries to confirm the existence of the Omigron variant, first identified in the Republic of South Africa. In the United Kingdom, which has tightened entry conditions in this regard, a third Omigron case was confirmed on Sunday. Meanwhile, most European countries have banned flights from South Africa and other South African countries for fear of extending the new option.
Experts around the world are currently evaluating the risks associated with Omigran, which has the largest number of mutations. Some indications are that it may be more contagious than previous variants, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified it as a type of corona virus of concern.
However, some South African doctors report that people with omigran, who are not affected by other diseases, have only mild symptoms. However, they fear complications for the elderly and those who have not been vaccinated.
