The World Health Organization (WHO) continues to assess the risk from the highly contagious Omicron variant of the coronavirus as “very high.” In its weekly report Tuesday evening, the WHO said that with more than 21 million new infections recorded worldwide in the past seven days, the “highest number of cases recorded weekly since the pandemic began.”

Overall, however, the incidence has grown “more slowly” than before, it said. According to the report, the number of new cases increased by five percent – down from 20 percent growth the previous week. The number of weekly deaths remained about the same at 50,000.

The Omicron variant continues to dominate worldwide, according to the report. The delta variant is “steadily declining,” while the alpha, beta and gamma variants have “very low” circulation, it said. In countries where Omicron cases had already risen sharply in November and December, the numbers are now declining, it said.
