He said, “Sooner than later, we’re gonna see cases of this variant in the US.”

“This variant is a cause of concern, not panic.”

According to Xinhua news agency, the President’s comments came as travel restrictions he announced on Friday were to be in effect for non-citizens who enter the US from South Africa.This is where the Omicron variant was first discovered.

Although it is not clear how effective the vaccines created by Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer will be against Omicron variant, Biden stated that vaccines are the best protection and urged everyone to get the jabs.

He also recommended that anyone aged 18 or older get an additional booster dose.

The vaccines are still free and approved for use by Americans over five years old.Adults aged 18 and over can get boosters six months after receiving their last Moderna or Pfizer shot, or two months after receiving their Johnson & Johnson shot.The booster does not need to be the same brand of the original shot.

During the briefing, President Obama stated that although it will take “a few weeks” to determine how effective the vaccines are against the new variant of the virus, “in the event that updated boosters or vaccinations are required against this variant, we will accelerate the development of these tools with every tool.”

Despite significant questions surrounding the Omicron coronavirus variant, the World Health Organization warned Monday of “very high” global risks.The spread of the virus was not stopped by countries around the globe, who rushed to protect it with a series of travel restrictions and border closures that recall the early days of the pandemic.
