The Technical Advisory Group on SARS-CoV-2 Virus Evolution (TAG-VE) that monitors and assesses the evolution of SARS-CoV-2 has advised the World Health Organization (WHO) that the B.1.1.529 variant should be designated as a Variant of Concern (VOC), named Omicron. This variant carries a large number of mutations, and preliminary evidence suggests an increased risk of reinfection compared to other VOCs.

Join our experts Dr Olivier Barles, Regional Medical Director, and Kareem Hossein, Security Manager, on Thursday, 9 December 2021 at 11.00 (Dubai) as they discuss Omicron and what it means for business and travel.
