Statistics from the Ministry of Health also indicate that the country is about to reach 4,000 active cases.

President Cortizo has called on the population to redouble prevention efforts and urged vaccination.

The reports of Cortizo and Sucre occur at a time when the World Health Organization (WHO) states that the Omicron variant has been detected in more than 85 countries, and the cases of Covid-19 related to this mutation are doubling between 1.5 and 3 days in places with community infections and not only for infections acquired abroad.

To date, no cases of the new variant have been detected in the country; however, health authorities are betting on epidemiological surveillance, as well as vaccinating the largest number of people throughout the country.

And well, you should be mike /sarc on.
The Covid guys are determined to make the “Omicron Variant” appear as frightening as possible, that means getting as many cases as possible, which means flipping all the way to the front of the Covid playbook.
Enter “The 5 Signs You May Have Omicron Covid”, an article in the Metro yesterday, and repeated in spirit across dozens of other outlets.
For those of you feeling morbidly curious, here are the five signs of Omicron:
* scratchy throat
* Fatigue
* mild muscle aches
* dry cough
* night sweats
The astute reader will no doubt pick up that these are the symptoms of every single one of the common cold viruses that infect millions of people all over the world every single year. Of course, all bets are off if they manipulate hospitalized vaccine adverse events as an Omicron case.
