Epidemiologist Alimehmeti: Delta is still in circulation, why Omicron causes mild symptoms
Written by SOT.COM.AL 17 Janar 2022
At the moment in our country is prevailing Omicron variant of the coronavirus. The news was announced by epidemiologist Ilir Alimehmeti.
However, Alimehmeti added that the Delta variant is still circulating, but will soon be "assimilated" completely. From the end of January, Omicroni will completely dominate in our country.
"It took Omicron 4 weeks from the start of the case. The first few weeks of January here… .somewhere by the end of January it will be 95 percent. "Delta will be in circulation for another two weeks, but it is unlikely to return."
The doctor suggested that depending on the variant, our behavior should also change, although he added that the virus will do its job, with or without measures. But how can we distinguish Delta or Omicron from the common flu. Alimehmeti says it is difficult to distinguish as they have similar symptoms.
"In practical terms, Delta, the flu and Omicron cause respiratory viruses such as sore throats and are treated as viruses. If it gets complicated then pneumonia starts to be treated. ”
While analyzing some graphs that show the progress of Delta and Omicron in our country or in Kosovo, Alimehmeti shows that regardless of the day on which an infected patient is, with Omicron the risk of mortality is very close to zero.
With Delta, however, the case is different, from day 10 it may be the highest risk.
"Omicron multiplies more in the nose and throat. 10 times less in the lungs, there are severe forms. That's one of the reasons we have Omicron's easy form. "
Also, the epidemiologist confirmed that most likely by the spring we emerge from the acute part of the pandemic and the virus may become endemic.
