ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has directed to immediately revive the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) keeping in view the emergence of new variant of Omicron virus.

Yesterday, the NIH said that it had detected the first case of Omicron sub-variant BA.2.12.1 which was causing an increasing number of cases in different Countries.

The NIH advised people to take the best preventive measures including wearing masks and getting vaccinated to avoid contracting the virus.
