The Daily Mail covered this story:
Two cases of new ‘super-mutant’ Covid variant Omicron have been detected in Australia after arriving from Africa where it first emerged.
NSW Health confirmed on Sunday urgent genomic testing found the two travellers who touched down in Sydney on Saturday night have the new strain.
They underwent testing on arrival and tested positive for Covid late last night,’ it said.
‘The two positive cases, who were asymptomatic, are in isolation in the special health accommodation. Both people are fully vaccinated.’
NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet confirmed 29 people, including the two confirmed Omicron cases, arrived on Saturday aboard two flights from the nine African nations feared to be infested with the variant.
Mr Perrotet said the strain could be contained and the state’s timeline of lifting restrictions at 95 per cent vaccination or on December 15 was on track.
Two other passengers who tested positive to Covid after arriving from southern Africa, one in Sydney and another at the Howard Springs facility near Darwin, are being screened to see if they also have the Omicron variant.
The cases were asymptomatic, proving what we have previously reported. The new mutation causes unusual but mild symptoms.
