Dangerous Omicron variant can also infect people who have been hit by Corona, claims study

Corona Omicron Symptoms: The world is shocked by the new variant of Corona, Omicron. So far, cases of Omicron have been found in more than two dozen countries. India is also no exception to this. Meanwhile, scientists have said that people who have had corona can also be infected with the Omicron variant.

Scientists in South Africa have warned that people who have had Kovid-19 are more likely to be infected with the new variant of the virus, ‘Omicron’, than any other variant.

A team of scientists is studying cases of re-infection in South Africa. He has discovered that after the arrival of Omicron, there has been an increase in the cases of re-infection. This has not been observed in previously exposed virus types, including Delta.

The results of the research were published online on Thursday. These results are preliminary and have not yet been scientifically reviewed. Scientists have not told how many cases of re-infection are from Omicron.

It is also not said whether those infected with Omicron became seriously ill. One of the researchers, Ann von Gottberg from the University of the Witwatersrand, said at a press conference of the World Health Organization on Thursday, ‘The delta type was protection from the first infection, but this is not the case with Omicron.’

The study also did not present data about the protection provided by vaccination. Von Gottberg said, ‘We believe that getting seriously ill can be prevented by vaccination.’
