No cases of the novel Omicron variety have been identified in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
In a statement issued on Friday, the CDC stated that any cases will be discovered as soon as possible using the country's variant surveillance system. "We are collaborating with other US and global public health and industry partners to learn more about this variant as we continue to monitor its progression," the statement said.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is constantly monitoring variants, and the variant surveillance system in the United States has consistently discovered novel variants. If Omicron appears in the United States, we expect it to be discovered quickly." It was also included. According to the CDC, people should use prevention methods such as wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas with significant or high community transmission, washing their hands frequently, and physically separating themselves from others. It also suggests that everyone aged 5 and up to be fully immunized against Covid-19, with those who are eligible to receive a booster dose.
Air Cargo Updates&Changes
In 2021 and 2022, there will be a shortage of air capacity because of the high demand for air freight from Asia to the United States and Europe.
Severe supply chain bottlenecks are the primary challenge for air freight. Delays and extended delivery times have been reported at a number of airports around Korea, China, Japan, and elsewhere due to terminal congestion. The countries of Australia and New Zealand: Exporters to all destinations over 500 kg are still at spot levels for Australian exports. Due to the restricted amount of capacity, standby allocations apply to all flights connecting Australia with Europe, the US, and New Zealand. Mainland China transit has taken more than seven days due to capacity issues. Mainland China traffic to Europe and the US is supported by airlines, with the remaining capacity flowing to Australia and New Zealand at express rates.
Hong Kong to Australia and New Zealand weekly consolidations are continuing at spot levels. Goods exported from Delhi, India, and Vietnam must now be scanned using X-ray technology. Longer travel times, ranging from seven to ten days, have become the norm. There is still a significant lack of capacity in Vietnam and the entire country's cargo is taken on a spot basis for pricing and capacity. Aviation cargo demand from the United States is producing capacity restrictions and rising freight rates in Japan and Korea. It's improbable that rates will stabilize before the beginning of December in the transatlantic market.
