Biden: Omicron is cause for caution, not panic

United States President Joe Biden stated on Monday that the Omicron variant of the coronavirus is "a cause for concern, [but] not panic."

Biden addressed the press and urged the US citizens to get booster doses of COVID-19 vaccines, explaining that medical experts are confident that fully vaccinated people will be protected against the new variant to a "significant" extent.

He expressed hope that no added measures will be needed to combat the spread of the new virus strain, but added that his team is "working with Pfizer and Moderna" in the case the country needs "a contingency plan."
