The World Health Organization on Friday marked a newly discovered variant of omicron, also known as B.1.1.529, as a “variant of concern”.

It is possible that it may be more infectious than the currently globally widespread variant delta. The WHO stated that the first known sample to confirm omicron infection was taken on 9 November in South Africa.

In addition to the Republic of South Africa, cases of infection with this variant have already appeared in Botswana, Hong Kong and Israel, for example. Belgium reported the first case from Europe on Friday.

The Czech Republic also announced two “probable” cases on Saturday and the first alleged case was also reported by Germany. In both countries, however, these suspicions have yet to be confirmed by tests. There have also been two cases in Britain.
