SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - We have been hearing more and more about increased COVID-19 numbers, especially with the omicron variant.

To answer some virus-related questions, KTIV’s Stella Daskalakis sat down with the senior medical director at UnityPoint Health-St. Luke’s, Dr. Jeffrey O’Tool. Some of the questions she asked included:

  • What is different with omicron?
  • Why is it spreading so fast?
  • What is the vaccine impact on omicron?
  • Is there an age group that it seems to be hitting the hardest?
