Newham resident tests positive for Omicron

There are currently 32 confirmed cases of Omicron in England and Scotland 

A person in Newham has tested positive for the Omicron variant of Covid. 

The UK Health Security Agency is working with the local council to identify any other people who may have come into contact with the resident. 

Newham Council said it will support anyone affected by the variant to safely isolate and it wishes the person “comfort during this time”. 

“The confirmation of one Omicron case in our borough reinforces the important public health messages we have been promoting with our residents and in our communities, including how vital it is that we all get vaccinated, have a booster jab, wear masks to protect each other and stay safe,” said a spokesperson for the council.

“Since the emergence of the Omicron variant in the UK, many residents have been coming forward for their first, second and booster vaccines over recent days; and we encourage everyone who is eligible to book appointments as soon as they can.”

There are currently 22 confirmed cases of Omicron in England and a further ten in Scotland. 

The main symptoms of Omicron are believed to be the same as other variants such as a new cough, a fever and loss of taste and smell.

The World Health Organisation was first made aware of a case of the variant in South Africa on Wednesday, 24 November.

Newham Council and the NHS are hosting a Q & A session about Covid and Omicron today at 6pm.
