According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the Omicron form, which originated in South Africa, has already begun to spread over the world, with significant repercussions, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). They have also admitted that they are currently researching the variation to see if current immunizations can protect against it.

This makes us question if the US-Mexico border can reintroduce crucial travel restrictions. Although it is too early to discuss this because the variation is still being examined, Anthony Fauci, an infectious diseases expert and the face of the United States' pandemic response, commented on the matter on Monday.

According to Fauci, the United States is unlikely to impose any limits, and vaccination remains a valuable tool. Of fact, the US has previously prohibited eight African countries from entering the country to restrict the spread of this type.

This will give researchers more time to figure out how transmissible this new variety is, how lethal it is, and if immunizations are still effective despite the strain's 30 mutations, as well as to prepare, since, as he told ABC News, "it is certain that it will take or sooner it spreads."
