Argument of type ‘{ useNewUrlParser: boolean; useUnifiedTopology: boolean}’ is not assignable to parameter of type’

Hello I am using "mongodb": "^4.7.0"

This is the line of code that has an error:
const CLIENT: MongoClient = new MongoClient(MONGO_URI, OPTIONS);

This is the OPTIONS constant:

const OPTIONS = {

  useNewUrlParser: true,

  useUnifiedTopology: true,


This is the error:

Type '{ useNewUrlParser: boolean; useUnifiedTopology: boolean; }' has no properties in common with type 'MongoClientOptions'.

I’ve looked at these answers:

Note: I am not using mongoose like the others in the answers nor am I using poolSize.

Thank you for your time!
