The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has issued an alert over the new omicron Covid-19 variant detected in Africa.

“We have issued alert notices to ports of entry and instructed them to take the appropriate steps,” DGHS spokesman Prof Md Nazmul Islam said during a regular briefing on Sunday.

Earlier on November 26, South African scientists detected a new Covid-19 variant in small numbers and are working to understand its potential implications.
