The spread of the Omi Keron variant has once again tightened Hong Kong’s air travel quarantine policy.

As 2022 is approaching, Omicron, a variant of the new crown virus, is raging in Europe and the United States. The number of confirmed cases has reached a new high, and community transmission has also occurred in Hong Kong.

Regarding the new crown epidemic, good news and bad news alternated. On the one hand, there are reports that the Kexing vaccine still has a low immune effect on Omi Keron after the booster shot; but there are also studies that claim that Omi Keron generally leads to a much lower risk of hospitalization than the variant Delta.

Under the blow of this round of the epidemic, the aviation sector has “made worse”. On Friday, 2,800 flights around the world were cancelled. This situation intensified this Saturday, with a total of 4,400 flights being cancelled. Among them, the United States accounts for about half.

The Director-General of the World Health Organization Tan Desai issued a statement on the occasion of the new year, saying that he remains optimistic about defeating the new crown epidemic in 2022, because there are more and more tools and methods to fight the epidemic.
