OCTA research fellow Ms. Nicanor Austriaco said on Wednesday, January 5 that the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) variant Omicron is the beginning of the end of the pandemic.

Austriaco made the statement during a meeting of Go Negosyo City Hall sharing a study that showed that those who survived the Omicron variant received antibodies that protected them not only against Omicron but also against Delta, Gamma, Beta, Alpha and the D614G, one of the earliest variants that led to a spike in COVID-19 cases in the Philippines in 2020.

“We need to recognize that Omicron is the beginning of the end of the pandemic because Omicron will provide the kind of population immunity that our societies will should stabilize and allow us to reopen, “he said.

” That is hope and prayer. The Omicron is actually a blessing. It will be tough for a month, but after that it should be a blessing because it should provide the civil protection we need everywhere, ”he added to be and to risk one’s own health and the well-being of others.

The OCTA scholar said it was hoped that the country would also follow suit to South Africa. He said the number of cases will be so high that the virus will run out of food. He mentioned that an increase is decreasing because the virus runs out of food.

“If the virus increases rapidly, it will try to spread to everyone and find so many of our Kababayans that are at risk. It seems to be spreading so quickly. What you will expect is the food will run out earlier, “he said.

Austriaco stated that this can only be seen in South Africa, where the numbers are falling, and in London, where the numbers are starting to fall, only because “it spreads like wildfire once, but when all the trees are burned there is nothing left for him. “The OCTA fellow said they also hope that it will only be about a month in Metro Manila, but right now it’s hard to know what’s going to happen. The country should then expect very high numbers of COVID-19 cases, but said that the public should not be afraid of these numbers.

According to Austriaco, it can be expected that most of these cases will be mild and there will be fewer hospitalizations and fewer deaths.

“We should expect a very rapid increase … We should expect this, but this is a good sign because if it climbs very quickly and it finds all the food it can find , it will also slow down quickly. This is our hope. and we shouldn’t panic, we shouldn’t expect a lockdown in the National Capital Region (NCR) unless our hospitals are overwhelmed and that’s really important because a lot of people are going to see the big numbers and they want the lockdown ” , he said. He added that the government must protect hospitals to save lives and as long as the hospitals, especially the intensive care unit, are not overwhelmed, lockdowns like 2020 won’t be required as granular locks would be enough.

What should be done, according to Austriaco, is to suppress mobility in order to further protect the hospitals; the sick are expected to stay at home.
