Our team member spoke to one of the prominent doctors in Mumbai on the possible implications of Omicron spread in campuses and understand the effect this may have on campus life, various upcoming tests and most importantly the health of a large number of students in these campuses.
According to Dr. Anil (identity changed as requested) – “Going by the cases and data so far, it can be prima facie said that Omicron is a virus which should be welcomed as it is not much of a threat and most likelihood it is supposed to act as an antibacterial or vaccine in itself and create herd immunity. Infected people are recovering in 4/5 days mostly. Omicron is spreading faster than other variants but has been less of a threat to the human body and effect is milder than Delta, Beta or other variants. Double vaccinated students are much safer than those who are not. With regular monitoring of parameters and medical attention, infected students should recover soon.”
