Respiratory expert from Bangkok’s Vichaiyut Hospital Dr Manoon Leechawengongs gave his prediction that the Omicron variant may be an indicator that the dreaded Covid-19 will come to an end in 2022.

Taking so social media, Dr Leechawengongs share that the reason why this may be the end of Covid-19 is down to his statement that the variant has mutated significantly from the original coronavirus and its impact is milder.

“Sooner or later, most people will be infected with the Omicron variant regardless of their ethnicity, sex or age.”

“Dr Wasan [Chantrathit, chief of Ramathibodi Hospital’s Centre for Medical Genomics] and I agree that as more people get vaccinated against Covid-19, we will achieve herd immunity against the virus, causing the pandemic to come to an end this year.”

“Thanks to Omicron, Covid-19 will eventually become an endemic infection, with young children getting it every year.”

This revelation, however, was not echoed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), that warned against categorising the Omicron variant as mild.

According to WHO’s Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: “While Omicron does appear to be less severe compared to Delta, especially in those vaccinated, it does not mean it should be categorised as mild.”

Stay tuned for more updates.
