WHO: Omicron spreading significantly faster than delta

DW News on Youtube shows that the World Health Organization (WHO) said that according to evidence thus far, the omicron variant of the coronavirus is spreading far more rapidly than the delta variant.

In a statement released on Friday, the WHO said "omicron has a substantial growth advantage over delta. It is spreading significantly faster than the delta variant in countries with high levels of population immunity."

Meanwhile, a ban on non-essential travel between France and the United Kingdom has come into effect. The new restrictions, announced by France on Thursday with just a week to go until Christmas, set off a last-minute rush.

The French government imposed the curbs to help slow the spread of the Omicron variant. The UK has seen a spike in coronavirus infections, with more than 93,000 new cases on Friday.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is certainly a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for international public health. The WHO Constitution states its main objective as "the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health". Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, it really has 6 regional offices and 150 field offices worldwide.

The WHO was established on 7 April 1948. The first meeting of the World Health Assembly (WHA), the agency's governing body, took place on 24 July of that year. The WHO incorporated the assets, personnel, and duties of the League of Nations' Health Organization and the Office International d'Hygiène Publique, including the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Its important work began in earnest in 1951 after a significant important infusion of financial and technical resources.
