COVID-19 – US Governors urge to take precautions on the new variant

The news of a new strain of coronavirus termed Omicron is gaining attention worldwide. The new coronavirus variant has become a hot topic of discussion across the world.

Governors around the United States have recently assured Americans that the administration is closely evaluating the modern developments after detecting a new variant of the coronavirus.

Gov. Ned Lamont, Connecticut, issued a statement recently, reminding his citizens to be attentive and careful, despite the fact that the new variant is yet to be spotted in the United States.

Speculations have it that there might be chances that Omicron, the new variant, has already been detected in the United States, and it may have already been present.

The other state leaders also urged people to remain alarmed while highlighting the measure which has already been taken previously during the pandemic. Mr. Lamont hinted about the network of sequencing genomes in his state, and asked residents to wear masks in indoor public spaces.

Next door in New York, Gov. Kathy Hochul reportedly announced a state of emergency in the region. Under the executive order, all state agencies are committed to taking proper action to assist local governments and individuals in encompassing and answering the coronavirus.

However, the precautions taken are far from the early pandemic rules; these are the first attempts of the nation to hasten the preparation for the arrival of the Omicron variant.

Kathy in a statement mentioned that the nation continues to witness threatening signs of spikes this upcoming winter, and as the new variant is yet not detected in New York state, it is definitely coming.

The United States health leaders are citing that it is very predictable that the variant will somehow reach the country, and they are willing to take cautionary measures but at the same time ask the people not to panic.
