No Omicron cases had been detected in Iraq – official

The Iraqi Ministry of Health confirmed that no new infection with the Omicron variant has been recorded in the country.

A member of the ministry’s media team, Ruba Falah, told Al-Ghadeer News, “The vaccine works on most variants,” noting, “the vaccine reduces mortalities and the severity of infection, but does not prevent contracting the new COVID-19 variant.”

There is no scientific proof that the vaccine is resistant to the new variant, he added.

Falah indicated that a meeting will be held to discuss the latest developments in the epidemiological situation.
