Just as different countries around the world start to open their doors amidst the pandemic, another variant is starting to emerge. This variant is more contagious than the previous ones and spreads like wildfire. Although it is said that the Omicron variant produces mild symptoms, health officials are warning the people to always follow the health protocols and maintain social distancing to avoid contracting COVID-19. Those unnecessary travels must also be avoided as much as possible to avoid complications later on.
