Omicron variant news – Having asthma, hay fever or eczema REDUCES risk of covid infection by 40%, study finds – .


“I caught the Omicron variant in LONDON around the same time it was discovered in South Africa,” says the doctor

A doctor who was one of the first people in the world to be infected with the Omicron Covid variant is believed to have caught it in London, it has been reported.

Elad Maor was in the UK for a conference for three days until November 23, around the time the most virulent strain was detected by researchers in South Africa.

The 45-year-old Israeli cardiologist stayed four nights in a hotel in Islington and experienced symptoms after returning home, then tested positive on November 27.

“I had the Omicron in London for sure,” he told The Guardian.

“It’s interesting because it was 10 days ago in London – really, really early. “

The father of three explained that he took a PCR test on November 20 after arriving in the UK and again the next day, in accordance with Israeli travel regulations, with both results being negative.

Upon his return to Tel Aviv on November 24, he underwent a third PCR test, which was also negative.

He said the only reasonable explanation is that he was infected on the last day of the meeting or perhaps at the airport because the third PCR was too early to detect the infection.
