It’s been revealed that two Israelis who returned to Israel from abroad were found to be carrying a combination of omicron and the infectious BA.2 variant of coronavirus, which has not been sequenced elsewhere in the world.

According to the Health Ministry, the patients had only weak symptoms, including fever, headaches, and muscle aches, and did not require specialized medical care.
