The Delhi Health Department has designated Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital as the dedicated facility to treat patients testing positive for the new COVID-19 variant Omicron.

The hospital has been asked to earmark wards for isolating and treating such patients.

The department also said that no patient with the new variant will be denied admission to hospitals on any ground.

The Union Health Ministry had Sunday issued new guidelines for international travellers for reporting of Omicron, which has been classified as 'variant of concern' by the World Health Organization (WHO).
