Scotland Reports Six Omicron Cases

Officials said that some of the cases of the Omicron coronavirus variant were not linked to travel, suggesting community transmission, but that there was no evidence that transmission was sustained or widespread.

Enhanced surveillance has identified six cases of the Omicron variant in Scotland so far. Four of these are in Lanarkshire and two in greater Glasgow and Clyde. Now it’s important for me to stress that the contact tracing of these cases is still ongoing. However, at this stage, we know that not all of them have any recent travel history to, or known links with others who have traveled to, the countries in Southern Africa, where the variant was originally detected. This suggests that there might already be some community transmission of this variant in Scotland. But again, let me stress there is no evidence yet that this is sustained, nor any evidence from the enhanced surveillance that it is widespread at this stage.
