The countdown has begun! Minister told- Omicron variant is about to knock in Pakistan

Asad Umar, the head of Pakistan’s anti-coronavirus task force, on Monday appealed to people to get an anti-Covid-19 vaccine, warning that only a few weeks are left for the new variant of Covid-19, Omicron, to reach the country. There is concern all over the world about this new form. Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar is also the head of the National Command and Control Center (NCOC) tasked with dealing with the pandemic.

He said that the world is so interconnected that it is impossible to stop new variants when it has started spreading in the world. Omar urged people to get vaccinated against the microbial form of Covid-19 as a precautionary measure. “This form (Omicron) will come to Pakistan and we have 2-3 weeks to mitigate the threat,” he said.

Vaccination will avert the danger
Omar said vaccination is the only way to reduce the risk as preliminary information suggests that vaccination will be effective against Omicron, despite being dangerous. The minister has also announced that a major vaccination campaign against COVID-19 will be launched in the next 2-3 days. Umar said, “I appeal to Pakistanis, especially those who have taken one dose and those who have to take another dose because it is an effective thing that we have to protect ourselves from this kind of danger.”

Final decision regarding booster dose is yet to come
The minister said the consultation process for giving booster doses to those at high risk would be completed by Tuesday. Pakistan has imposed travel restrictions on six African countries and Hong Kong. The first case of Omicron was reported in South Africa, from where it spread all over the world. After Europe, it is now spreading its feet in the UK where there have been a total of 9 cases of Omicron.
