The molecular biologist Andreas Bergthaler is not optimistic because of the Omikron variant. “We now have new opponents,” he said. Data from other countries would make it clear that the new Corona variant is on the advance: “In London 30 percent of all new infections are already with this variant. In England it is generally assumed that Omikron is the dominant variant at the end of the week. So it will occur in more than 50 percent of new infections. “

Austria is not an island of the blessed here either. And so at the end of one lockdown the next threatens: “If we have one, then there is no alternative. But actually you should use the coming weeks to take measures to prevent this, ”says the biologist.
