A 46-year-old doctor with no foreign travel history is one of the two confirmed Omicron cases in India. His sample was sent for genome sequencing by chance, according to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike, because the CT value in his Covid test was 13, indicating a very heavy viral load.
Apart from exhaustion, the doctor showed no other symptoms and is now fine, according to reports. The doctor attended an international conference between November 18 and November 20, according to the government, which is now tracing the possible sources from which he might have been infected by the new variant. The doctor, according to reports, attended the event on November 20, the final day.
He went to the doctor the next day with a fever and body ache and was tested. If the doctor contracted the Omicron variant from that international event, which was attended by a large number of foreign delegates, the administration should be concerned because the conference could turn out to be a’superspreader.’ However, because the symptoms appeared only a day after the doctor attended the conference, the possibility that he contracted it prior to attending the conference still exists, as symptoms take time to manifest.
According to reports, he arrived at the hospital on November 19 and performed his last surgery on November 17. Because he is an anesthesiologist, he does not have direct contact with patients, and hospital officials have stated that the hospital is safe.
