HONG KONG, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — With an increasing number of confirmed cases in Hong Kong since the initial transmission on 27th December 2021, the recent Omicron outbreak is of utmost concern in the community. WHO has classified Omicron as a Variant of Concern (VOC) due to having mutations known to display increased transmissibility, illness severity, or decreased effectiveness in diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics, and public health measures such as social distancing. Currently, Omicron’s severity compared to other variants is unclear, adding fear and uncertainty to Hong Kong’s community. In such sense, a way to re-build a trusted and protected community is of urgent importance.
