In Karnataka, five additional persons tested positive for the Omicron version of SARS CoV2, bringing the state’s total for the new variety to 19. An 11-year-old girl tested positive for Covid in one of the instances, but her major contacts tested positive for Omicron.
On Saturday, Dakshina Kannada reported five Omicron instances, with another 19-year-old student from a cluster at a nursing institution testing positive for the variation, bringing the total in the coastal region to six. On December 12, she tested positive for Covid, and her samples were sent for genome sequencing. She is the second female at her college who has tested positive for Omicron. She was completely immunised in July and is still asymptomatic. Her vital signs are normal.
After their 11-year-old granddaughter had an RT-PCR test to attend offline lessons at a school in Bengaluru, the samples of two elderly persons, an 82-year-old man and his 73-year-old wife, tested positive for Omicron in Udupi. On November 26, the girl tested positive for Covid.
Later, three of her four key contacts in her family, including her grandparents, tested positive for Covid. “The elderly couple was fully vaccinated in May, and the 73-year-old woman is a cancer patient on medicine,” said Udupi Deputy Commissioner Kurma Rao.
She’s doing OK.” Because the girl and her family live in an apartment, all 2,700 inhabitants and surrounding residences had their samples examined. Only five individuals tested positive for Covid. The first Omicron case in Dharwad was recorded in a 54-year-old guy with no travel history.
According to authorities, he is well, has no symptoms, and is being treated at home. His four primary connections and 133 secondary contacts all came out negative. A 20-year-old lady from Bhadravathi was found to be Omicron-positive.
She is one of 25 nursing students who have tested positive for the extremely contagious virus. According to DHO Dr Rajesh Suragihalli, she tested positive after returning from Kerala. The woman had no prior travel experience. She has been in solitary confinement since December 2. Approximately 700 were examined, and 26 of them tested positive for Covid-19.
