The death toll until Omikron’s arrival was 183 (December 15). Nineteen more have been killed since that date. That is 9.4 percent of the total, in four weeks.

On the number of omikron infections – assuming that this is largely responsible for the current wave of infection – that is a death rate of 0.17 percent. The other variants were responsible for two thirds of all infections (21,500) in a year and a half and with 183 deaths, this leads to a death rate of 0.85 percent. More than five times higher.
