Any Covid-19 Questions?
Although the Covid situation has changed with the identification of the Omicron variant, medical opinion has not yet decided if the threat is more serious or not. The chair of the South African Medical Association, who first identified the variant, has indicated that symptoms are mild, mostly in the young, and amongst the unvaccinated. London 2022 is continuing to plan as before, and we look forward to a great show in London next year. The London 2022 Organising Committee has established a new email address of email@example.com where any questions concerning the latest covid plans can be sent.
