Away from the noisy political scenes and the Omicron baleful covid-19 variant, Omicron officially made its way into the country on Wednesday, sending Kenyans into more confusion.
The South African associate virus as reported by Health CS Mutahi Kagwe, was detected among three travellers, two Kenyans and one South African.
It is a variant that is reported to be more infectious, easily transmissible and mild as compared to the other variants.
It is however the news that it might be more dominant in the country and globally than the dreaded delta variant that could have sent chills down the spines of many Kenyans, who felt Omicron might come to ruin hopes for a boom Christmas.

Meanwhile, vaccination still remains the surest way to keep Omicron at bay as reports reveal it is not so mild in vaccinated persons as compared to those who are not.
