Louisiana confirms first Omicorn COVID case

Louisiana's first case of the new Omicron strain of COVID-19 has been detected in the New Orleans area, according to the state health department.

"We now know omicron is here in Louisiana. This is cause for concern, but not panic," State Health Officer Joe Kanter said. The individual that tested positive recently traveled within the United States, per the announcement.

The new strain, thought to be more transmissible, has already been detected in at least a third of the US federal states.
