Omicron Coronavirus hit all major cryptocurrencies, except gaming coins

The crypto market rally was hit from all directions last week, with the major indexes tumbling below key levels by Friday on the new Omicron Covid variant. The current uncertainty makes it difficult to navigate the crypto markets rally. Investors should be playing more defense than offense until conditions clearly improve. More clarity on the new omicron variant is needed.

A new coronavirus variant with a large number of mutations, first detected in South Africa, is raising concerns. It’s unclear if the B.1.1529 Covid variant, dubbed the omicron variant on Friday, is more deadly or infectious than prior strains, or whether vaccinations or prior Covid infection provide substantial protection. But health officials are worried.

The World Health Organization noted that the omicron variant appears to have a higher risk of reinfection for people who have already had Covid-19. The WHO declared it a “variant of concern,” the first such designation since the delta variant a year ago.

The U.S., U.K., European Union, Australia, Israel and Singapore have suspended flights or entry from southern Africa.

Dutch officials on Sunday reported 13 Omicron Covid cases among travelers from South Africa to the Netherlands.

The U.K., Belgium, Australia, Italy, Hong Kong and Israel are among countries that have identified a handful of Omicron Covid cases.
