The new Covid-19 variant “Omicron” is now the biggest concern of all the world countries as it is potentially dangerous variant. India is on high alert as many countries report Omicron variant cases, with both the Centre and state governments announcing new travel guidelines.

Now, the Union Health Ministry on Wednesday said that as many as six passengers travelling from the “at risk” nations have been tested positive for Coronavirus amid the new variant Omicron scare.

According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, a total of 3476 passengers travelled from “at risk” countries in 11 international flights landed at various airports of the country except Lucknow, from midnight to 4 pm today.

“All 3476 passengers were administered RT PCR Tests, wherein only six passengers were found COVID-19 positive. The samples of the COVID-19 positive passengers have been sent to INSACOG labs for Whole Genomic Sequencing. The government of India continues to keep track of the evolving situation, and support States and UTs in the fight against the pandemic through a “whole of Government” approach,” the ministry said.

The countries in the ‘at-risk’ category are European countries, which include the United Kingdom, besides South Africa, Bangladesh, Brazil, Botswana, Mauritius, China, New Zealand, Singapore, Zimbabwe, Hong Kong and Israel.

Meanwhile, the cumulative number of Coronavirus vaccine doses administered in India crossed 125 Crore on Wednesday, the Union Health Ministry said.
