Meanwhile, in China, the capital Beijing has detected its first case of Omicron now less than three weeks to go until the city hosts the Winter Olympics.
According to city’s disease control authority on Saturday, the infected person had not left the Chinese capital for the past 14 days and had no known exposure to the virus.
The authorities have sealed off the person's residential compound and workplace, and collected samples for testing from those places.
And Japan, on Saturday, reported more than 25 thousand new coronavirus cases.
This is near the all-time high recorded last August.
