As omicron spreads, officials are urging individuals to be vaccinated


Over the weekend, the number of cases of the Omicron coronavirus type in India increased to 21, prompting officials to urge people to be vaccinated (Dec 6). The western state of Rajasthan had the most Omicron instances, with nine, followed by Maharashtra with eight, Karnataka with two, and Gujarat and New Delhi with one apiece.
On Twitter, Delhi’s health minister, Satyendar Jain, stated, “The people of Delhi must be completely vaccinated, wear a mask, and keep social distance.”
He added that the city’s first Omicron patient was being treated in a state-run facility. He noted that 94% of the adults had got at least one dosage.
In all, 51% of the country’s 944 million people have been completely vaccinated, with 85% receiving at least one shot. According to official data, despite sufficient vaccination supplies, tens of millions of individuals are overdue for their second shot. On Thursday, India’s first two Omicron cases were announced in the southern state of Karnataka, one of whom had no recent travel history.
The majority of the other cases have been in persons who have recently returned from overseas, but physicians say the altered virus is spreading locally as well. On Twitter, surgeon Arvinder Singh Soin, who has been treating Covid-19 patients, claimed, “Omicron is here, community spread is starting.”
“Put on your mask. Vaccinate yourself completely.”
