Because of One Positive Omicron Friend in New York, 15 of His Friends Infected With Covid-19

SERAMBINEWS.COM, NEW YORK – A Minnesota man, United States of America who attended the anime convention in New York last month tested positive Covid-19 varian Omicron.

He reportedly told health officials that as many as 15 of his friends had also contracted Covid-19.

It’s unclear if any of those people are also affected by the variant Omicron, health officials told the media.

That man is one of the variant cases Omicron first reported in United States of America.

Thus, it raises the question of whether the variant spread across events attended by tens of thousands of people.

“It’s hard to say it’s been a super-spreader,” Kathy Como-Sabetti, Minnesota Department of Public Health’s manager of Covid-19 epidemiology, told The New York Times Saturday.

“Obviously, we’re worried about that,” he added.

Offices in New York and Minnesota and with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating the possibility of spread Omicron.

The Washington Post reported health workers were tracing the man’s contact number.

“We don’t know if we’ll see much Omicron, or more Delta variants,” Kris Ehresmann, director of the Division of Epidemiology, Prevention, and Control of Infectious Diseases at the Minnesota Department of Health.
