- WORLD NET DAILY - Abby Liebing - DEC 10, 2021 -
22 states have already reported at least 1 case of variant
The newest variant of COVID-19 is the omicron strain.
The omicron variant is showing up all over the world and now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a report outlining what is known so far about the new variant.
The CDC report found that the majority of Americans who have been infected with omicron were actually already vaccinated.
"Among these  cases of COVID-19 attributed to the Omicron variant, 34 (79%) occurred in persons who completed the primary series of an FDA-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine ≥14 days before symptom onset or receipt of a positive SARS-CoV-2 test result," the report noted.
This figure included 14 individuals, or nearly a third, who had also received an additional or booster dose of the vaccine.
Twenty-two states have already reported at least one case of the omicron variant.
South Africa was the first country to alert the rest of the world to the existence of omicron in November, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Since then the variant has been showing up in Europe, the U.K. and the United States.
Currently, the U.K. has the most cases of the omicron variant, and the rest of the world is observing how the country is handling the new crisis.
"We are seeing growth in cases here in the U.K. that now mirrors the rapid increases previously seen in South Africa. And South Africa has also seen hospitalizations roughly doubling in a week," the prime minister said.
The Biden administration similarly has begun encouraging new measures to protect Americans against the variant.
