Omicron’s community transmission started in Delhi, learn shocking facts in this study


New Delhi: The cases of Coronavirus infection have increased rapidly worldwide due to the Omicron variant. This variant is also the reason for the third wave of Corona in India. Evidence of community transmission of Omicron variants has been found in the capital Delhi. This has been revealed by a study. Data from all individuals who were infected with the Omicron variant were included in this study. The study also revealed that the cases of breakthrough infection increased in Delhi, the rate of hospitalization decreased and most of the infected persons had fewer symptoms.

The researchers involved in this study believe that the Omicron variant has overtaken the delta variant in cases of infection and the main reason for this is community transmission. This is the first study done in the country in which evidence of community infection of this variant has been found in Delhi. Due to this variant, people were re-infected with corona, the rate of hospitalization decreased and most cases were less symptomatic.

The study found that 60.9% of patients infected with the Omicron variant had no international travel record, so the infection was definitely localized. This type of community transmission can lead to challenges in epidemic control going forward.


According to the news agency ANI, the Department of Clinical Virology of the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences has traced the initial community transmission of Omicron variants through this study in Delhi. According to this study, 60 percent of Omicron cases were asymptomatic and did not require hospitalization. While 87 percent of people are fully vaccinated
Were. At the same time, community transmission has been detected in 61 percent of the cases.

It has also been found in this study that young and male voters have been more infected than children and the elderly. At the same time, this study shows that there is a decrease in immunity-related to coronavirus in large populations. These include cases related to vaccines and naturally developed antibodies. In this study, the researchers emphasized the need for a booster dose to control Omicron.
