As per the sources, Maharashtra and Delhi is the first one to detect the Omicron virus the patients of Covid were kept in isolation for genomic structure. It was found that there was 84 percent of Covid cases of Omicron variant in Delhi and there was 60-75 percent of the isolates are of Omicron virus. If we see so the total number of active cases stands at 79,097 cases.
Maharashtra and Delhi have the highest number of Omicron cases as mentioned above that stand by 54 each followed by Telangana 20 and Kerala 19. Meanwhile, the Delhi government has imposed the night curfew and weekend lockdown for safety from Friday 10 pm to Monday 5 am. In view of the high density of this variant, there is a need for strict enforcement of COVID protocols and COVIS appropriate behaviour. States and union territories have been recommended to obtain logistical supplies like diagnostic reagents and kits (both RT-PCR) and fast antigen tests in order to avoid stock shortages if the number of cases increases.
Due to the consistency gripping in India with the Omicron outbreak owing to which several states and Union Territories, including Delhi and Maharashtra among others, have imposed restrictions. The Centre also advised states and UT’s to start setting up makeshift hospitals to increase the availability of beds and create special teams to evaluate home isolation cases. Omicron is divided into two sub-lineages: 70 percent are identified as 'S' Gene' dropouts, while the rest are not. According to experts, RT-PCR assays show the presence of Covid-19, but the variant is detected through genome sequencing and S-gene target failure. The absence of the S gene indicates that there is a variant.
Due to the Omicron cases coming around the world could increase the density and risk of the new more dangerous variant emerging the World Health Organization said yesterday.
