“ Our sanitarium coffers are stressed-out really heavily right now – not because of omicron, but because of delta primarily,” he said. “ And also we ’re not going to get a reprieve because as soon as we start to get those delta cases out, we’ve omicron cases submerging in.”

Meanwhile, the study led by the National Institute for Communicable Conditions (NICD) followed further than people who tested positive for COVID-19 between October 1 and December 6, and plant that those infected with Omicron were 80 percent are less likely to end up in sanitarium when compared with other variants.

Omicron is over 70% less likely to need sanitarium care and Omicron surge appears milder, but concern remains as hospitals across the country are also rising. France’s health minister Olivier Veran advised this week that January would be tough for hospitals. He added that Omicron cases were taking up” conventional” beds in hospitals while Delta was putting a strain on ICU departments. France on Thursday reported cases.
