Germany panic: Fears new Covid strain already in European nation – warning issued

Kai Klose, the Minister of State for Social Affairs and Integration for Hesse, tweeted: “It is very likely that the #Omicron variant has already arrived in Germany.”

He added: “Last night, several mutations typical of Omicron were found in a person returning from South Africa.

“So the suspicion is strong and the person has been isolated at home. The complete sequencing is still pending.”

He appealed: “Please protect yourself and those around you.

“If you have returned from southern Africa in the last week, limit your contacts and get tested!”
