The regional health agency (ARS), Grand Est, announced that a twice-vaccinated woman tested positive for the Omicron variant Thursday in Haut-Rhin. This is the second case detected in mainland France.
The major regional health agency (ARS) confirmed Thursday that it had detected a second case of the Omicron variant in the French capital of a resident of Haut-Rhin.
This is a woman between the ages of 40 and 50, who tested positive for Covid-19 when she returned from South Africa on November 26. Her symptoms were at the time of the test. She has been in solitary confinement since her return to France.
This person has a full vaccination schedule, ARS Grand Est said in a press release, having received his second dose of the vaccine last July. A small number of high-risk contacts were identified, and their results were negative. However, they were placed in solitary confinement.
The first case in Sein et al. Marne
Earlier on Thursday, it was announced that the first case of Omicron had been detected in the French capital, in Seine-et-Marne, of a man returning from his residence in Nigeria. He tested positive on November 25, when he got off the plane, and sequencing revealed he was a carrier of the type.
In France, the first case of the Omicron variant was discovered last Tuesday in Reunion. He is a 53-year-old man who traveled to Mozambique and made a stop in South Africa.
On Wednesday, government spokesman Gabriel Attal said ’13 cases suspected of being du variant Omicron’ in France. All of these cases were in the process of sequencing. “So let’s not be deceived or mocked, there are likely to be cases in our territory in the coming hours or days,” he said.
