Two more completely vaccinated people were confirmed infected with Omicron in Maharashtra, while a guy tested positive for the latest version of the coronavirus in Gujarat, bringing the total number of cases in the country to 41 on Tuesday.

This comes just a day after the first Omicron cases were recorded in Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and Chandigarh.

Maharashtra (20), Rajasthan (9), Karnataka (3), Gujarat (4), Kerala (1), and Andhra Pradesh (1), as well as the Union Territories of Delhi (2) and Chandigarh (1), have all reported Omicron instances (1).

The Omicron variation was originally reported in India in Bengaluru, where two people tested positive for it, including a South African national of Indian descent and a doctor.

“According to a report provided today by the National Institute of Virology, two new cases of Omicron infection have been discovered, one from Latur and one from Pune,” the state health department said.

Both Omicron patients, including a lady, are asymptomatic and have been completely vaccinated, according to the health authority.

It is a 39-year-old woman in Pune and a 33-year-old man in Latur. Both patients have a travel history to Dubai, according to the state health department, and three of their close contacts have been tracked down. Covid-19 was found to be negative in all three of them.

In Surat, Gujarat, a 42-year-old man who had recently returned from South Africa tested positive for Omicron.

When he returned to Delhi, he had a test to see if he had Covid-19, which came out negative. However, after arriving in Gujarat, he began to exhibit symptoms, prompting officials to retest him.

Restrictions over Omicron

Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi chief minister, stated on Monday that if necessary, limitations will be imposed around Christmas and New Year to prevent the spread of Omicron. However, he claims that such actions are not required right soon.

The Delhi administration, according to Kejriwal, is well equipped to cope with the Omicron strain of the coronavirus, and he is in regular contact with experts on the subject.

On December 31 and January 1, the Tamil Nadu government announced that public gatherings at all beaches in the state would be prohibited.

Covid-19 clusters should be discovered, and genetic sequencing studies should be scaled up in these locations, according to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
