#Kolkata: After Karnataka, Gujarat, Delhi, Maharashtra, Rajasthan. In one state after another, new forms of corona, Omicron, are being discovered. As a result, anxiety has spread everywhere. Recently, in the panic of ‘Omicron’, the center was putting a lot of emphasis on corona testing of passengers coming from certain countries.
Emphasis is also placed on genome sequencing. And in that genome sequencing, the ‘Omicron’ variant was first caught on the bodies of two people from Karnataka. This new Omicron variant was later found in the body of a man from Gujarat. On Sunday, the bodies of one person were found in Delhi and eight in Maharashtra in the evening.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has previously warned against this omikron. The Union Ministry of Health has again warned all the states about the new form of coronavirus ‘Omicron’ identified in South Africa.
Corona infestations have been on the rise in the state for several days, with more than 800 cases per day. Yesterday, the number of corona cases was reduced to 721 people.

However, raising concerns, only 40,231 corona tests have been performed in the last 24 hours across the state, of which 720 corona positive.
Corona positivity rate in the state remained unchanged at 1.54% yesterday. Part of the medical community in the state says that while it has been repeatedly said that more corona tests are being done, very few corona tests are being done in the state now and as a result the number of infected people is much less. But it is becoming a matter of considerable concern.
Although the number of corona cases in the state has come down a lot, no other district has been able to surpass the record of corona cases in Kolkata. Kolkata has the highest number of corona cases every day. In the last 24 hours, 18 corona cases have been reported in Kolkata, an increase from yesterday, and the number of deaths has decreased by one.

The situation is much better in the districts of North Bengal.
