Another 46 Cases of Omicron Variant Identified in Hungary
Hungary’s National Public Health Centre (NNK) on Thursday said it had identified another 46 cases of the omicron variant of the coronavirus, bringing the total number of cases to 61.

The omicron variant is spreading quickly in several European countries and has been found to be more contagious than previous variants, the NNK said on the government website koronavirus.gov.hu.

It added, however, that there were conflicting reports of the severity of the variant given the lack of clinical data on it.
