quote of the day
We cannot respond to the Omicron variant using standards that we used for the Delta variant. If we cannot be certain of the characteristics of the Omicron variant, our measures will become ineffective. We need to pay close attention to the trend of the number of severe symptom patients and the number of hospital beds occupied.
