Not a single case of Omicron in India, find out why WHO called it 'Enemy of Concern'

New Delhi: The novel SARS-COV-2 variant b.1.1.1.529 has been found in South Africa by the World Health Organization (WHO). It has been classified as a type (VOC) of virus known as Omicron. The decision has resulted in a massive change in epidemic management priorities throughout the world.

Increased surveillance, including virus genome sequencing, as well as accelerated targeted research and mitigation measures to identify the threats posed by this variant, such as wearing masks, are among the recommendations made by the WHO. In the UK and many other nations, further limitations on foreign travel have already been introduced. In fact, Japan has barred all international visitors from entering the country. The speed with which this variant of the virus VOC was declared is remarkable. It's been a little over two weeks since the virus was first detected in Botswana and South Africa.

 

Compare it to the Delta version, which is still in use in Europe and other areas of the world. The first case of this edition was filed in India in October 2020, but it took at least six months to obtain VOC status, despite a substantial increase in cases in the country (as well as many other countries). Union Health Minister Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya remarked in the Upper House of Parliament that no cases of the Omicron type of corona have been detected in India so far.
