According to the information, a man from Crete, who was diagnosed with the Omicron mutation and who carries the coronavirus with mild symptoms, was vaccinated.
A Greek from Johannesburg, who arrived in Crete directly from South Africa on November 26, tested positive for the coronavirus on November 29. Today it was confirmed that he has the Omicron mutation, despite the fact that the citizen was vaccinated with two doses.
According to the head of the 7th department (Διοικήτρια της 7ης ΥΠΕ) of the Ministry of Health of Crete, Lena Bormudaki, who answered questions from Radio Crete journalists, the man with the Omicron mutation has a good clinical picture and is in quarantine at home.
As the specialist explained, in connection with the movement of a Greek citizen (who arrived from a region dangerous for the coronavirus situation), from the first moment he was treated with special attention.
At the same time, precious time was not wasted on tracing the contacts of the arrived by civil protection services. He just did not have time to communicate with anyone.
Perhaps, thanks to the prompt action of the competent services, the first case of the Omicron strain will be “crushed in the bud.”
