Health ministry confirms two infections with “Omicron”

The media office of the Ministry of Public Health confirmed in a statement, “The two positive cases that have undergone genomic sequencing are already infected with the omicron mutant. And the two cases are in domestic isolation and show mild symptoms, knowing that they came from Africa, and the genetic examination for them took place at the Lebanese American University, with the support of the World Health Organization.

The Ministry considered that “the arrival of the mutant Omicron to Lebanon was a matter of time after its spread in most countries of the world, but this should constitute an incentive for all, citizens and residents, not to tolerate preventive measures and to turn out heavily and without any hesitation in the Pfizer marathon that continues today and tomorrow for more safety.” societal.”
