More than 50% of cases of the Omicron variant of MERS-CoV have been detected in England in fully vaccinated people: The National Health Safety Agency (UKHSA), the Daily Mail reports. According to the agency, out of a total of 22 diversity-related infections in South Africa confirmed as of November 30, as many as 12 – the equivalent of 55% – are patients who have received at least two doses of a Covid vaccine. Of the ten others, six were unvaccinated, two were partially vaccinated, and the other two had no known vaccination status. Health authorities assert that the share of the vaccine in England is much higher than that of those that have not been vaccinated, and therefore – they say – the high proportion of infected people recorded among vaccinated people does not necessarily indicate that the Omicron variant is resistant to the vaccine.
