Corona-News: Lauterbach worried about incomplete data – Omikron dominant in Schleswig-Holstein

The mutant first discovered at the end of November seems to be less severe, and even patients who end up in the hospital spend less time there, John Bell, professor of medicine at Oxford, told BBC Radio 4’s Today program.
