The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is a “dangerous virus” particularly for those who are unvaccinated, World Health Organization (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday
The nation Covid-19 daily positivity rate jumped to 13.11 per cent.
India now has 5,488 confirmed cases of Omicron.
Meanwhile, top government officials on Wednesday advised people not to treat the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 as common cold while asking doctors to follow a rational approach in their
prescriptions instead of prescribing unnecessary medicines that have been proven useless in Covid-19 treatment.
The officials also warned against ‘rampant and irrational’ use of Molnupiravir, which they say has a narrow window of clinical application.
