KATHMANDU: The government has decided to take necessary precaution to prevent the entry of new variant of COVID-19 ‘Omicron’.

The cabinet meeting held on November 29 issued an order regarding the travel management of passengers coming to Nepal from countries where Omicron has been detected.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the new variant, Omicron, could spread rapidly and cause serious infection. The new variant has been found in South Africa, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Arrangements have been made for passengers coming from countries with reported case of the variant to undergo tests at Tribhuvan International Airport and hotel quarantine, according to spokesperson of the government and Minister for Communications and Information Technology Gyanendra Bahadur Karki.
