How to Protect from Omicron, AIIMS director Randeep Guleria explain two things people can do.


We need to do two things to protect ourselves, the first one is to take vaccines and the second is to follow Covid-appropriate behaviour, said AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria.

New Delhi: With the number of Omicron cases increasing in the country, AIIMS chief Dr Randeep Guleria on Wednesday listed two ways people can protect themselves.

Calling Omicron, a more transmissible variant, Guleria said that people must take COVID-19 vaccines and follow COVID-19-appropriate behaviour.

On Monday, Dr Guleria had said that COVID-19 vaccines can be “tweaked” to provide protection against new variants of the virus.

His remarks came amid the ongoing debate about whether a booster shot is needed to increase antibodies.

Speaking at a programme organised here in Maharashtra on Sunday, Dr Guleria said that as far as the severity of the Omicron variant is concerned, the next few weeks will be very crucial.
