WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) – In view of the incipient spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus in the USA, President Joe Biden has warned unvaccinated people of a “winter of severe disease and deaths”. Unvaccinated people put themselves and their families in danger and threatened to bring hospitals to capacity limits, Biden said in the White House on Thursday. Omikron is already spreading in the USA. The best protection against the new variant is a full vaccination and a booster, said Biden.

The president warned that Omikron would spread “much faster” in the US as early as January. “But there is good news: if you are vaccinated and have your booster, you are protected against serious disease and death,” said Biden.

The number of new infections in the USA has recently risen again significantly. The US health authority CDC currently reports an average of around 120,000 new infections per day. So far, the delta variant is still responsible for more than 90 percent of infections. In some parts of the country, especially in the northeastern United States, a rapid increase in the number of omicron cases has already been recorded.
