Omicron Variant of the coronavirus is more likely to cause reinfection in people who had previously been affected by the coronavirus. The scientists who are looking into the matter a lot, have found that the variant of the coronavirus is more likely to cause reinfection maybe even three times more than the other variants of the coronavirus.
“In contrast, the recent spread of the omicron variant has been associated with a decrease in the hazard of primary infection and an increase in reinfection hazard. The estimated hazard ratio for reinfection versus primary infection for the period from Nov. 1, 2021, to Nov. 27, 2021, versus wave 1 was 2.39,” the authors wrote.
It is based on the “population-level evidence,” as had been seen by the people who are working on it. After a lot of research that had been done, they had gone ahead and concluded the fact of the matter which gives us the info that the omicron mutation is and we are quoting what they had said here “associated with substantial ability to evade immunity from prior infection.”

“In contrast, there is no population-wide epidemiological evidence of immune escape associated with the beta or delta variants,” the study had been said to note. There had been a note from the authors who had gone to do it. “Urgent questions remain regarding whether omicron is also able to evade vaccine-induced immunity and the potential implications of reduced immunity to infection on protection against severe disease and death.”
That is all for now. Stay aware and stay safe guys.
