Skënder Brataj / The harmless Omicron variant! How can we distinguish it

For the Albanian health authorities, the Omicron variant is not more dangerous than the others. Although the worldwide spread of the new variant of COVID, Omicron has caused concern, the Head of the National Emergency Skënder Brataj says that this mutation is not more dangerous than others, but we should not neglect it.

Infected people should be put to a medical examination not earlier than 3-5 days with symptoms and do blood tests, dedimer, ferritin and PCR and seeing that there are indicators of infection can be added antibiotics, but not in cases where we find that we just have a fever 38 degrees. "The other good weapon is the vaccine," Brataj told ReportTV.
