This comes as India prepares for the third wave of COVID-19 which may get triggered by the newly detected Omicron variant. The national capital along with Maharashtra is among the worst-hit states at the moment. According to the latest data, Delhi has reported a rising positivity rate with 4,099 new cases in 24 hours on Monday.
The Omicron variant of COVID-19 was first detected in the samples of patients in South Africa on November 24, 2021. The World Health Organisation marked it as a 'Variant of Concern' after studies showed that the strain is highly virulent as it has over 30 worrisome mutations in its spike protein which may help it evade through the vaccine-induced immunity.
Currently, the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is present in over 110 countries, including India, the US, the UK, and Europe. So far, India has reported a total number of 17,11 cases associated with the new variant.
