New Delhi: Cases of omicron variants are also on the rise amid increasing cases of corona infection in India. The number of omicron cases is also increasing at a rapid pace. According to data released by the Union Health Ministry on Tuesday today, More than 400 cases of highly mutated variants have been registered in India in the last 24 hours. With this, the total number of omicron cases has increased to 4,461. Health Ministry data also revealed that omicron cases have spread to 28 states and Union Territories. Maharashtra has reported the highest number of 1,247 cases of omicron, followed by Rajasthan (645 cases), Delhi (546 cases), Karnataka (479 cases) and Kerala 350 cases.
On the other hand, out of the total cases infected with the Omicron variant across the country, 1,711 patients have recovered so far or have been discharged from hospitals. At present, the cases of omicron cases in the country have increased to 4,461. Although omicron is considered more resistant to the existing corona vaccine, it is causing mild infections. Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan yesterday sent a letter to states and Union Territories (UTs) saying that only five to 10 per cent of active cases are required to be admitted to the hospital.
However, he said that the situation is moving and evolving so the need to be admitted to the hospital can also change rapidly. Bhushan advised all states and Union Territories to monitor the total data on active cases, especially those in home isolation, admitted to hospitals, ICU and ventilation support. Also, the case of oxygen beds should be monitored.
