The Philippine Department of Health said today that it has detected the country’s first two imported cases of the Omicron virus strain following the 48 samples sequenced yesterday. Those two patients are now in quarantine.
At the same time, Cambodia reported its first Omicron case when a 23 year old Cambodian national returned to the kingdom from Ghana, via Dubai and Bangkok. According to a statement released by the government, the woman is 15 weeks pregnant and has been brought to the hospital for treatment.
