A new mutation called Omicron has been detected in various countries, including South Africa. Thus the federal government has imposed new restrictions on travelers from different countries. According to the Minister of Health, facilities for diagnosing this new type of disease have been set up at 12 places in Tamil Nadu.

According to doctors, the biological laboratory at the Coimbatore Government Medical College Hospital has a facility to diagnose new infections. Nirmala, Dean, Government Medical College Hospital, said: “The kit used in the RTPCR test to diagnose corona infection can detect one or two cells.

S, N, and ORF, the three cells (genes) that are currently being provided to detect new infections, can be detected by the provided kit. If there is no “S” cell in it, there is a chance of an omicron infection. The samples will be sent back to the State Public Health Department laboratory in Chennai for testing and confirmation of omicron infection.

In the first phase, 5,000 kits have been donated to Coimbatore Government Medical College Hospital. Travelers from specific countries, those with severe symptoms of coronavirus, and those with different symptoms are advised to test RTPCR.

No such symptoms have been reported in Coimbatore so far, she said.
