And in that genome sequencing, ‘Omicron’ variant was caught in the bodies of two people. Health Secretary Love Agarwal said on the day that a new look had been found in the bodies of the two in Karnataka. Earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) had warned about this immunization. The Union Ministry of Health has again warned all the states about the new form of coronavirus ‘Omicron’ identified in South Africa. The Union Ministry of Health has directed to take special precautionary measures against passengers of 12 countries including Great Britain, Bangladesh, Singapore and Israel.
