@jisha Hello, Omicron is more transmissible than Delta. Omicrons variant of COVID-19 has more than 30 mutations and is on the virus’s spike protein, the part that attaches to human cells, and several of those are believed to increase the probability of infection. So, part of its enhanced transmissibility may come from its ability to evade some immune responses, especially in individuals who were previously infected but not vaccinated.
