There has been growing concern over the spread of Omicron, a new covid-19 said to originate from South Africa and for which many countries have placed travel ban on some African countries.
In fact, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) this Wednesday morning, confirmed the first three cases of the Omicron in Nigeria, saying they are linked to passengers from South Africa.
