New Variant Virus “Omicron” Has Confirmed Cases Worldwide


Omicron had just appeared, and confirmed cases immediately appeared in various countries, triggering global vigilance. The international community is vying to implement tourism control and new isolation measures to prevent the entry of new mutant strains. Reuters and the Financial Times reported that the Dutch health authorities stated that 13 Omicron patients were found on two flights from South Africa to Amsterdam last Friday (26th). The authorities immediately tested more than 600 passengers on the two flights, confirming 61 people are suffering from new coronary pneumonia and need to be further tested for infection with the Omicron virus strain. Hugo de Jong, Minister of Health of the Netherlands, told reporters: "This may be just the tip of the iceberg." It is conceivable that there are more Omicron patients in the country. Last week, Omicron was listed as a “variant of concern” by the World Health Organization (WHO), warning that the new variants may be more infectious and seem to make cured patients get sick again. Currently, patients in Australia, Belgium, Botswana, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Canada, and South Africa are all present. Many countries control the entry of South African passengers and even directly issue bans. After finding a confirmed case, Israel became the first country to close its borders to foreigners. The country also requires mandatory isolation of returning passengers, supervised by the army and the Israeli National Security Agency.
