BENGALURU: We do not know much about Omicron, but from my experience, it does not seem serious and does not call for worry said, Doctor infected with Omicron varient of Covid-19 .

Stay calm and test immediately and seek treatment, said the Doctor. His wife was quarantined at home and he is one among two patients in India infected with the variant.

The Doctor said that his symptoms included breathing difficulties and his oxygen saturation was normal throughout. “I did not have a cold, cough or any breathing difficulty,” said the doctor.

He was given a dose of monoclonal antibodies on November 25 and made a lot of difference, he said. Virologists have also noted that Omicron responded to antibody therapy. Genomic sequencing reports of doctors five positive contacts are pending.
