Delhi health Minister: Omicron strain gradually spreading in the community

Jain also said that 46 of 115 samples sequenced in the national capital so far had tested positive for the new strain. Delhi has reported the maximum number of Omicron cases so far- 263.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said Thursday that people with no travel history have been infected for the Omicron Covid variant and this means it is gradually spreading in the community.

Jain also said that 46 of 115 samples sequenced in the national capital so far had tested positive for the new strain.

Delhi added 25 cases to its tally of the new heavily-mutated omicron variant on Thursday, staying ahead of Maharashtra for the second day in a row. The capital has recorded 263 cases of omicron variant since it was first detected in the country in early December, which is the highest in the country.

The increasing number of omicron cases could be the reason behind the sudden surge in the number of Covid-19 in the city.

Researchers at the United Kingdom's Cambridge University have warned of an "explosive" growth of Omicron cases in India within days, and said it is "hard to predict how high daily cases" could go.
