1st Case of Omicron Variant Detected in California

The Omicron variant is here. The dreaded first case has been detected in California, in a traveler from South Africa, who is now self-quarantining. The good news is, it’s a mild case. The unidentified patient was fully vaccinated but did not have the booster shot. A spokesperson for the World Health Organization said that Omicron infections seem to be milder, but more transmissible. There’s also a lot of confusion over how to pronounce the new variant - so what is the right way to say “Omicron?”
