Omicron's community transmission begins in Delhi, scary revelation in reports

New Delhi: The number of coronavirus infection cases has been increasing rapidly all over the world since the detection of new variants of coronavirus Omicron. Omicron is the main cause of the rising cases of the third wave in India. According to a study, for the first time in Delhi, evidence of community transmission of Omicron variants (B1.1.529) has been found.

For the first time in the country, research has been conducted that confirms community transmission. This information was given by the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS), New Delhi. According to the report, the Department of Clinical Virology of the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences confirmed the initial community transmission of the Omicron (B1.1.529) variant of the coronavirus. A report in Medraxiv claims that the research took respiratory samples from all RT-PCR between November 25 and December 23, 2021. Samples were taken from five districts of Delhi. Of the 264 cases covered during the research period, 68.9 per cent of cases (182 samples) were delta variants and 31.06 per cent of cases (82 samples) were Omicron, with the BA.1 major sub-lineage (73.1 per cent).

According to this, most of Omicron's cases (61 per cent) were asymptomatic (50 cases) and they did not need to be admitted to any hospital. While a total of 72 cases (87.8 percent) had taken both doses of the vaccine. At the same time, 39.1 percent (32 cases) had a history of travel and contact, that is, these people were infected by coming in contact with an infected person or during travel. Whereas community transmission has been confirmed in 60.9 percent (50 cases).
