The WHO said that 77 countries have so far confirmed cases of Omicron. The reality is that Omicron is in more countries than that. Even if it is not known yet. Omicron is expanding at a rate we haven't seen with any previous variant. The spread of OMICRON can be stopped only by all the measures adopted from the beginning till now. It should be implemented seriously very soon. No country will be able to come out of this crisis with a vaccine alone.
