5 cases of omicron COVID-19 variant detected in New York



At least five cases of the COVID-19 omicron variant were reported in New York, just hours after the Minnesota Department of Health announced a case in a resident with a recent travel history to New York City.

Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the confirmed cases during a joint press conference with Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday evening.

All of the cases are said to be mild and everyone recovered at home.
