The OECD urged Wednesday the States to accelerate the rhythm in the distribution of the doses in order to stop the pandemic, pointing out “the threat for the economic recovery” of the Omicron variant.

“The Omicron strain adds more uncertainty to the one already at work, which could pose a threat to the recovery,” Laurence Boone, the international organization’s chief economist, said at a news conference Wednesday.

In its interim economic outlook, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development says “the priority remains to ensure that vaccines are produced and distributed as quickly as possible around the world, including booster doses.
 
The Omicron variant “could pose a threat to the recovery” of the global economy, OECD chief economist Laurence Boone warned Wednesday, as this new, potentially more contagious and lethal strain of coronavirus spreads around the world.

“We are concerned that the new variant, the Omicron strain, adds more uncertainty to the one already at work, which could pose a threat to economic recovery,” Laurence Boone told a news conference. 
 
Published in the journal Frontiers in Medicine, a U.S. study suggests that severe forms of Covid-19 can significantly impair long-term health.

According to University of Florida professor Arch Mainous, the study’s lead author, patients who survive severe Covid are more than twice as likely to die within a year than those who remain uninfected or have milder viral symptoms.
 
Washington wants stricter testing requirements for travellers entering the U.S. and is considering a quarantine on arrival in the United States, according to health officials concerned about the spread of the Omicron variant.

These measures could be officially announced Thursday by the American president Joe Biden, who must present his strategy to face the epidemic of Covid-19 this winter.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the nation’s main federal public health agency, said it is working to reduce the time to test to one day before flying for all passengers, regardless of vaccination status.
