Hungary’s National Public Health Centre (NNK) on Monday said it has so far identified 15 cases of the omicron variant of the coronavirus and is testing more samples suspected of containing the variant.
The omicron variant is spreading quickly in several European countries and has been found to be more contagious than previous variants, the NNK said on the government website koronavirus.gov.hu. It added, however, that there were conflicting reports of the severity of the variant given the lack of clinical data on it.
The NNK urged those who are unvaccinated against Covid to get the jab and those who are vaccinated to also get a booster shot.
