Nigeria: Omicron strain appeared earlier than expected

In Nigeria, a new strain of Omicron coronavirus appeared even earlier than it was reported in South Africa.

According to the AR, it was discovered in samples taken back in October.

Meanwhile, South Africa announced the discovery of a new strain of coronavirus in mid-November.

Head of the Center for Disease Control of Nigeria Ifedayo Adetifa said that this became known through retrospective sequencing of previously confirmed cases among travelers arriving in Nigeria.
