All the healthcare workers are being trained and instructed properly for the treatment of the coronavirus. There is no separate treatment for the different variants of the virus.”
He said: “People are demanding the Omicron test these days, this is to inform them that the information on Omicron is necessary only for the government and policy makers so that it can ensure the system works accordingly. Patients will not get to know anything new about the variant because the treatment process for other corona variants is exactly the same as the Omicron variant. The Omicron variant is a variant of the corona itself and the protocol for its treatment and prevention is also the same as before.”
