Lok Nayak Jai Prakash (LNJP) Hospital in Delhi, which is one of India’s biggest hospitals for dedicated facilities for Covid-19 patients, hasn’t received a single Omicron-confirmed patient to date which required oxygen support.
The doctor said most of the patients are those who tested COVID-19 positive at the airport upon arrival from foreign countries.
A senior doctor at Delhi's LNJP said around 90 per cent of the Covid-19 Omicron patients are "asymptotic" and the rest showed mild symptoms like "sore throat, low-grade fever and body ache".
According to the officials, the 37-year-old patient who tested positive for Omicron is an Indian and had returned from Tanzania a few days ago. Currently he is admitted to the LNJP Hospital in Delhi.
A fire broke out at Delhi's Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital. No casualty was reported and the cause of the fire is being found out, Delhi Fire Service officials said.
These labs have been set up as part of the Delhi government's preparations for a possible third wave of coronavirus.
