Romania investigating two suspected Omicron cases on flight from South Africa

BUCHAREST, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Romania is investigating two suspected cases of the new Omicron coronavirus variant in fully vaccinated persons flown back from South Africa earlier this week aboard a repatriation flight, the health ministry said on Thursday.

Forty-six people were flown home on the repatriation flight, including 29 members of a rugby team. All tested negative apart from three, and of those three, two were suspected of carrying the Omicron variant, the ministry said. Both were fully vaccinated and showed no symptoms.
