Financial Associated Press, January 17 (Xinhua) on the 16th local time, German Federal Health Minister lautbach said in an interview with local media that the Omicron strain is not the end of the epidemic. Although the latest research shows that compared with delta strain, the hospitalization rate of Omicron strain has decreased by 50% and the mortality has decreased by more than 70%, if the number of infections is too high, it will still lead to the collapse of the medical system. At the same time, it is uncertain whether this risk reduction applies to the unvaccinated elderly, so he warned not to underestimate the impact of the Omicron strain.
