Omicron is slowly spreading its footprint in India. Omicron is knocking every day in the states of the country and the number of patients is increasing continuously. Maharashtra has the highest number of cases of Omicron. So far 73 cases of Omicron have been reported in the country, out of which 32 are from Maharashtra alone. The situation in Mumbai is such that the police administration has imposed section 144 in the city from today i.e. from December 16 to December 31. That is, this time the Christmas and New Year of Mumbaikars will be spent between the strict guidelines of Omicron.
According to the police guidelines, five or more people cannot gather at one place. Apart from this, there will also be a ban on organizing public meetings. Only 50 percent of the people will be able to participate in the program. Along with this, emphasis is also being given on corona vaccination. Even fully vaccinated persons will be able to use public transport.
Omicron's knock has also happened in Delhi. The Delhi government has already become alert about the Omicron variant of Corona. The number of Rapid RT-PCR machines at Delhi Airport is being increased from 120 to 200. The number of employees posted in the laboratory of Delhi Airport will also be increased from 600 to 750.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has warned about the danger of the new variant Omicron of the coronavirus. She said that do not take Omicron lightly. This variant is spreading very fast. She said Omicron could dominate 27 EU countries by mid-January. A situation like a medical emergency may arise. She said that due to the rapid increase in new infections, more restrictions could be imposed in Europe.
Von der said that at the moment the European Union is facing a double challenge. The cases of Omicron are increasing rapidly with the delta variant. The number of patients in hospitals is increasing and unfortunately, the death toll is also increasing. Cases of Omicron in the UK are doubling every two to three days. The burden on UK hospitals has increased once again.
