The first case of Omicron variant in Italy is a 55-year-old company executive. Resident in the province of Caserta, the professional returned in recent days from a trip to Mozambique and landed in Milan. Vaccinated with two doses, it is paucisymptomatic. His contacts are also isolated, the five family members who for now, according to Adnkronos, have no symptoms. “The patient and his family contacts are in good health,” the Higher Institute of Health said in a statement. The genome of the Omicron variant of Sars-Cov -2 was sequenced, for the first time in Italy, by the ‘Laboratory of Clinical Microbiology, Virology and Bioemergency Diagnostics of the Sacco Hospital in Milan’.
