Scientists find 'stealth' version of Omicron that may be harder to detect through PCR: Guardian Updated: 2021-12-08 20:45:32 KST

Scientists have reportedly identified a "stealth" version of Omicron which cannot be distinguished from other variants when carrying out PCR tests.
According to UK newspaper the Guardian on Tuesday, this stealth version lacks certain features that allow probable cases to be differentiated when taking a PCR test.
That means it is much more difficult to detect.
The report came as the UK on Tuesday confirmed over a hundred new cases of Omicron in a single day, raising the total to 437.
