What New Virus Strain Means for Traders
2022-02-16 • Updated
A new Covid-19 variant has been found in South Africa and Botswana. The World Health Organization named it ‘omicron’ and added it to the variants of concern. Many countries have closed their borders for travellers from South Africa amid concerns that omicron can trigger another Covid-19 resurgence.
