Preliminary evidence indicates that COVID-19 vaccines may be less effective against infection and transmission linked to the Omicron coronavirus variant, which also carries a higher risk of reinfection, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday.

Which of the following can be best described as the WHO’s view on the omicron coronavirus variant?
None of these

Thus, the word best describes WHO’s view on omicron virus is: skeptical. Skeptical means doubting that something is true or useful. Arrogant means having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or abilities. Diabolic means characteristic of the Devil, or so evil as to be suggestive of the Devil.
