Omicron may be significantly better at evading vaccine-induced immunity, but less likely to cause severe disease
The Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 may be significantly better than previous variants at evading vaccine-induced antibodies, according to new research from Cambridge - but preliminary evidence suggests it is less likely to cause severe COVID-19 illness in the lungs. Omicron's mutations present the virus with a double-edged sword: it's got better at evading the immune system, but it might have lost some of its ability to cause severe disease Ravi Gupta As the SARS-CoV-2 virus replicates and spreads, errors in its genetic code can lead to changes in the virus.
