More people will be infected with the deadly Omicron variant, reinfections are said to occur, even amongst those who are fully vaccinated. The disease is said to spread like wildfire and may result in more deaths than the COVID-19 and other variants that followed.

Rules for Self-Isolation
In difficult times, it’s advised to have ease in self-isolation especially for those who are sick and tested positive for the COVID-19. To avoid the spread of the disease some people are exempted if they are
- Under 18 years old and even under 6 months old.
- Fully vaccinated
- Anyone who is in the COVID-19 vaccine trials
- People who are unable to get vaccinated
Anyone who gets in contact with an infected person, especially someone who has Omicron Variant needs to be isolated with serious precautions. Now people have to take a lateral flow test every day for at least a week to ensure they are not sick. Self-isolating is key especially if you are tested positive any day during the week.
