The COVID-19 cases of the newly detected Omicron variant are rising slowly with each passing day. Many states in the country have reported at least one case of the new variant while other states have been screening every traveller arriving from other countries.
Now, Delhi has reported ten new Omicron cases, a day after the city saw the sharpest daily spike in coronavirus cases in nearly four months. The patients are between 20 and 55 years, a doctor in the capital said.
Only one of the nine patients has shown mild symptoms, said Suresh Kumar, Medical Director at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital.
As per the official reports, the national capital, so far, reported 20 Omicron cases since the new variant was detected in South Africa last month.
