Countries around the world, including the Netherlands and Germany, discovered the Omicron variant coming from African countries.

 

Moderna company announced that it is developing an anti-vaccine to prevent the Omicron variant to be available in large quantities early next year.

 

The dollar index rose against a basket of major currencies by 0.3% to 96.4 points as of 14:58 GMT, after hitting a high of 96.4 points and a low of 96.1 points.

 

Copper December futures rose 1.1% to $4.33 per pound as of 14:49 GMT.
