Why did it happen? The Omicron variant flu spread rapidly through Europe last year, causing the death of nearly 12,000 people in 22 countries, including Italy and Sweden. It is characterised by a different shape, making it easier to evade the vaccine and spreading quickly. It can lead to death by “craniocellular” pneumonia which can lead to cardiac arrest and heart failure.
