Will Covid-19 affect the New Year 2023 this year as well?

As per the current update, there is less chance of Covid-19 affecting the upcoming events. A few weeks ago, the BF.7 Sub-variant of the Omicron variant was introduced to the world, which spiked alertness amongst government bodies. For a few days, many countries took immediate measures to limit their transmitting chances. There are many countries that were almost ready to shut their borders, and a few did cancel the international flight from the infected countries. Several European countries reapplied the Covid-19 precaution and made them mandatory. Many appeals from the government to discourage the less important mass events till the danger subsides.

There have not been many fatalities due to BF.7 sub-variant Omicron so far. Also, there are fewer death rates and even the infected ones are not showing severe symptoms. It is not wise to take this lightly that is for sure, but given the results, people are fearing it less. If the statistics for the fatalities due to Omicron remains as it is to the death, there are fewer chances that it will affect holiday seasons. People around the globe have lived with Covid-19 fear, now they prefer not to continue doing so. People have been vaccinated and even started taking boosters. So if you are one of those you may want to continue planning for the holidays. Be careful with the safety issues though.
