3 more Omicron cases detected in Bangladesh


Three more Covid cases of the Omicron variant have been detected in Bangladesh, raising the total tally to seven.

According to GISAID, a global initiative on sharing all influenza data, shared the results on Wednesday.

With the fresh one, seven people have been diagnosed with Omicron in Bangladesh. Earlier, two more Omicron cases were detected in the country on Tuesday.

On December 11, Bangladesh reported its first two cases of the Omicron variant in two members of the Bangladesh women cricket team.

They returned from Zimbabwe after taking part in the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers. The event was, however, called off midway due to the surge of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

After coming back to Dhaka, they were isolated in a hotel.

On December 6, the health department confirmed that two women cricketers were Covid-positive.

However, on December 20, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) confirmed both the players tested negative for Covid.
