Imperial College London conducted a comparative study of 56,000 omcron cases and 269,000 delta-affected individuals. Depending on which group needed hospital treatment, the rate of omecron patients was 15 to 25 percent lower than that of Delta, while the rate of omecron cases in hospital admissions was 40 to 45 percent lower.
In addition, the University of Edinburgh looked at data from 5.4 million Scottish citizens and found that the number of hospitalized patients infected with omecron was reduced by two-thirds compared to Delta.
A similar analysis in South Africa supports the welcome results. The chances of hospitalization are 70 to 80 percent lower than in Delta.
Earlier, the chief medical adviser of the United States, Dr. Fossey, had also said that the new type of Corona, Omicron, is less dangerous than the previous type of Delta virus.
