Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik appealed to the people to remain alert and strictly adhere to Covid appropriate behaviour as the new variant Omicron case has been witnessed in the state.
According to the official reports, Odisha CM said- “Now infections due to new variant of Covid-19-Omicron are spreading very fast. Therefore, we have to remain alert. I am appealing to you to always wear a mask, wash your hands repeatedly and maintain social distance. Odisha has adopted a cautious approach towards the pandemic from the beginning. We have been able to successfully control the first and second waves of Covid despite challenging situations. We are now battle-hardened and I am sure we will be able to successfully tackle this resurgence as well.”
He then added “We have to reactivate all our protocols and keep the Covid facilities and personnel on high alert. We have to enforce the Covid safety protocols strictly. I urge the DGP to continue the good work done by the Police since the first wave and enforce strictly.”.
Two international travellers in the State were found to be infected with the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. Odisha Government has decided to send more samples for genome sequencing to detect Omicron cases.
