Covid-19: You suspect the occurrence of the Omicron variant in Tarija

The deputy director of the San Juan de Dios Regional Hospital in Tarija, Marcelo Ugarte, reported that the Omicron variant may be present in this department. This is due to the fact that there are several cases of Covid-19 that share symptoms of the Omicron variant.

“We already know that here in Tarija we certainly have the Omicron strain, we cannot bring it to the market with paper because we have no answer from Inlasa, but we are sure that it is here,” reported Ugarte .

Already in December, the director of the headquarters, Álvaro Justiniano, warned of a possible Omicron in an interview with El Deber.
