Omicron COVID variant confirmed in Germany

Germany's first two cases of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant have been detected in its southern state of Bavaria, the state health ministry announced on Saturday.

The two individuals have crossed the border into the country at Munich airport on November 24 and are now in self-isolation, Bavarian Health Minister Klaus Holetschek said.

Earlier on Saturday, a German minister in the state of Hesse, Kai Klose, said that it is very likely that the seemingly more contagious mutant strain already arrived in Germany.
