NEW DELHI (AP) – India has confirmed its first two cases of the omicron variant coronavirus. India’s health ministry said the cases included two men in the southern state of Karnataka. The ministry said they were from abroad, but did not say where. Health official Lav Agarwal said all contacts of the two men have been traced and tested for the virus. India has classified at least 12 countries as “at risk” and six as “extreme risk” in response to the threat posed by the omicron variant. Travelers from those countries are being screened after they arrive in India. Genome sequencing is also being performed for variant detection. So far, India has tested nearly 8,000 passengers. Some states have enacted strict restrictions on certain international visitors.
