In December 2019, a new SARS-CoV-2 virus emerged in Wuhan, China, which has already presented several variants. The world is experiencing a major surge with the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2. Estimates based on modeling by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) suggest that by 17 January 2022 there were 125 million omicron infections per day worldwide, more than ten times the peak of the delta wave in April 2021, as the proportion of asymptomatic or mild cases has increased compared to previous variants of this virus.
