Berlin – In view of the Omikron virus variant, hospitals in Berlin look to the coming weeks with concern. “The main problem for the hospitals is the high infectivity of the new variant and the expected strong increase in the number of people with Covid in the population.

The 1999 Microsoft video game Omikron continues to go viral on social media amid the new Omicron strain and people have a lot to say about it on Twitter. One person wrote: “Omicron was the name of a 1999 video game by Microsoft and Bill Gates about demons pretending to be humans and harvesting their souls…. “This is a video game from 1999 called Omikron . Listen to the video from 4:30 to 4:52. Completely conspiratorial, but it’s very very unnerving when compared to what is happening,” said another.

South Africa delivered some positive news on the omicron coronavirus variant on Friday, reporting a much lower rate of hospital admissions and signs that the wave of infections may be peaking.

"In addition, in this phase of the pandemic, we must check exactly which cases still outpatient, in the hospital or in the intensive care unit must be supplied." It is therefore necessary to be a good interaction between established physicians and clinics.
