According to the Health Ministry, India has reported more than 400 Omicron cases. It said that at least 100 of them have been cured. Maharashtra is home to the most Omicron infections, with 108 cases. Delhi has 79. Gujarat has 43 Omicron cases, while Telangana has 38. Kerala has 37 Omicron cases and Tamil Nadu 34. None of the northeast states have reported any Omicron cases.
Friday’s report by the centre stated that of the 358 Omicron cases reported up to now, 183 had been analysed. It was discovered that 91 were fully vaccinated, with three receiving booster doses, while 70% were symptomatic.
The Omicron variant’s rise has also brought another pandemic-tinted Christmas to billions of people around the world. Santa’s arrival and long-awaited family reunions were overshadowed somewhat by the possibility of more COVID-19 restrictions.
Maharashtra’s state government stated that gatherings of five people or more are not allowed between 9 pm and 6 AM. Haryana and Delhi also have tightened restrictions for Christmas. However, Delhi allows places of worship to continue open.
