BREAKING: Uganda Confirms Multiple Cases Of Omicron Variant Of Covid-19

As the World Health Organisation (WHO) continues with the fight against Covid-19 infections, new deadly variants are emerging each and every day which are threatening yet again.

Recently, a new variant labelled Omicron Covid-19 strain was discovered in South Africa prompting several countries to mark this country as a red zone.

According to K24 digital news reports, landlocked East African country of Uganda has been hit by the new variant as it has been reported that their ministry of health has confirmed nine new cases of Omicron Covid-19 variant.

The reports claim that the nine individuals that have been found with the Omicron Covid-19 variant have a travel history to South Africa which has called to immediate action of tracing their contacts.

This will be a major issue to the East African community yet again because if one country is hit, there is possibility of other countries to be affected because of the economic connections.

Stay home, stay safe.
