Expert predicts that the Omicron variant might work as a live attenuated vaccine


Dr. Manoon Leechawengwongs, a medical expert, believes that the Omicron coronavirus variant will develop into a live vaccine that provides immunity without a booster shot. He also has indicated that Thailand will soon face a surge in COVID-19 infections.

Dr. Manoon is a pulmonary disease expert at Vichaiyut Hospital. Recently he posted that the Kingdom will face a new wave of infections that could be the largest in two years. He added that daily cases could grow exponentially and recommended citizens not be too worried about the possibility.

Dr. Manoon believes the Omicron strain will eventually infect everyone causing entire populations to achieve herd immunity. He suggests that the Omnicron variant will operate as a live attenuated vaccine, delivering better immunity stimulation than existing COVID vaccines.

The expert noted that the future for vaccine manufacturers might be difficult as a consequence of this trend.
