Uganda confirms first 7 Omicron variant cases

Uganda has confirmed the first seven cases of the Covid-19 Omicron variant, as announced by Health Minister Jane Ruth.

The variant was detected in two travelers from South Africa and five from Nigeria, who arrived in Uganda more than a week ago.

They have now raised fears that the virus could have already spread to more people in the country.

Jane Ruth however, assures Ugandans that the travelers have been isolated, adding that they are not severely ill but needed monitoring.

Moreover, she attested that though the virus is present in the country, it does not exhibit severe symptoms.
