So far 10 Omicron cases in Delhi, none serious: Satyendar Jain – Nach Welt

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said Thursday that 10 cases of the new COVID-19 variant Omicron had been discovered in the capital so far and none of them had developed a “serious” disease.

He said 40 people are currently being admitted to the Lok Nayak Hospital specialty facility dedicated to the isolation and treatment of suspected Omicron cases. 38 of them are Covid-positive.

“So far, ten Omicron cases have been discovered in Delhi. One of them was fired, ”Jain told reporters.

There has been no “serious” case so far, he said.

As of Tuesday, there had been six cases of Omicron in Delhi. The number increased to eight on Wednesday and 10 on Thursday.

The minister said many international travelers were Covid positive upon arrival at Indira Gandhi International Airport.

“Eight such people were hospitalized today (Thursday),” he said.

On Tuesday, Jain said the Omicron variant of the coronavirus had not yet spread in the community and the situation was under control.

Delhi’s first Omicron variant patient – a 37-year-old Ranchi man – was discharged Monday after testing negative for COVID-19 twice, officials said.

On December 2, he traveled on a Qatar Airways flight from Tanzania to Doha and from there to Delhi. He stayed in Johannesburg, South Africa for a week and had mild symptoms.

According to the new standards, RT-PCR tests are mandatory for passengers arriving from the “risk countries” and they are only allowed to leave the airport when the results are available.

In addition, two percent of passengers who arrive on flights from other countries are randomly tested.
