Manila, Philippines – Nagbabala sa publiko ang infectious disease expert sa publiko laban sa pagkamit ng terminong “mild” upang ilarawan ang Omicron variant ng coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“Omicron is not mild. It is milder than Delta. It is milder if you are fully vaccinated. We are still seeing severe disease and deaths for Omicron, almost all of which are among the unvaccinated,” ayon kay Infectious disease expert Dr. Edsel Salvana.

Hinikayat din nito ang publiko na magpabakuna lalo pa at may banta ng variant na mabilis makahawa.

“Want to live with the virus? That’s only going to happen if you are vaccinated. Otherwise, you can still die from it,” punto pa ni Salvana.  RNT/FGDC
