On January 8, 

Tianjin sounded the clarion call to fight the omicron variant. 

At present, anyang city in Henan province, 

Wuxi city in Jiangsu province and Dalian city in Liaoning Province have detected positive cases successively

So, what is Omicron?   
What are the characteristics and symptoms?   
Are children more susceptible to Omicron?   
How should we prevent it?

We are here to answer your questions

What is Omicron

The Omicron strain, a Novel Coronavirus variant B.1.1.529, was first detected in samples from the South African case on 24 November 2021 and has been classified by the world as the fifth Novel Coronavirus variant of "concern", named after the Greek letter Omicron.  At present, omicron strain has become the main circulating strain in South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries.

What are the characteristics and symptoms of the Omicron strain

Compared with the Delta variant, the Omicron strain is more stealthful and transmissible, which has been transmitted for three generations since its discovery in Tianjin.  The symptoms of those infected are relatively mild and severe.

Specific performance is as follows:

■ Severe symptoms of upper respiratory tract, cough, pharyngeal pain more;

■ Some patients have fever symptoms, mainly moderate fever, 38 degrees Celsius, 38.5 degrees Celsius;

■ Fewer digestive tract symptoms, usually digestive tract symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea);

Are children more susceptible to Omicron?

Zhang Boli: The first batch of infected people in Tianjin were in a nursery school, so there were more children, but that doesn't mean the virus is more likely to affect children. With the progress of nucleic acid testing in Tianjin, the proportion of confirmed cases among children is gradually decreasing. It is too early to say that children are susceptible.  In addition, the treatment of children is our current focus. Yesterday, we sent three chief pediatricians of Traditional Chinese medicine to tianjin designated hospitals to fight side by side with western pediatricians to treat children with one policy and hope that they will recover as soon as possible.

Zhang Ying, Deputy director of The Tianjin Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said: "In the early stage of the epidemic, the proportion of children was relatively high, but with the progress of the epidemic, the proportion of students gradually decreased, and the proportion of adults, young people and elderly people in the community gradually increased.  So it's not that children are susceptible, it's that the whole population of Omicron is susceptible.

How to guard against the Omicron variant?

Maintain a good sense of personal protection

 Maintain good personal hygiene.  Frequent hand washing, disinfection, often wearing a mask of science, ventilation, less often gathered (especially avoid poor ventilation or crowded place), the public attention to keep "one-meter line" social distance, with a tissue when coughing, sneezing or elbow sleeve cover and so on, these good habits is still an effective way to prevent the spread of the virus, for Mr Mick Dijon variants.

Boost your immunity

This is a powerful weapon against all types of viruses, including the Novel Coronavirus.  Daily attention should be paid to reasonable diet, appropriate exercise, adequate sleep, especially do not stay up late.  Sleeping after 12 o 'clock will lower your immunity.

Get booster shots as soon as possible

The best way to prevent COVID-19 is to get vaccinated.  According to the research results at home and abroad, the complete inoculation of novel coronavirus vaccine has a significant effect in preventing severe illness and reducing mortality.  However, after vaccination for a period of time, the protective effect of the vaccine on some people may be weakened, timely enhanced immunization can make the neutralizing antibodies that have been gradually reduced grow rapidly or rebound, so as to produce a better protective effect.

And strengthening needle can make the body continue to maintain strong immunity, and neutralizing antibody will get rapid growth.  Therefore, people aged 18 and older who have already received the second dose and are six months old should be vaccinated as soon as possible.  Get a booster immunization.

Omicron is highly contagious and has a long incubation period. Although the symptoms are similar to those of the flu, it is not a major flu, so it should not be taken lightly.  Spring Festival is approaching, especially high standards, strict requirements.  Once again appeal to everyone: once appear suspicious symptoms, to timely standard medical treatment, do not careless, do not fluke.  As long as we work together, help each other and stick to the normal prevention and control strategy, we will be able to win the battle against "imported COVID-19 and domestic rebound".
