Telangana Health Department has got alerted in the wake of the Omicron scare across the world. Surveillance has increased in the airports to monitor passengers arriving from 'At-Risk' countries. A 35-year-old woman who has come on British Airways to the airport in Hyderabad has tested positive for coronavirus. She is isolated at TIMS, Gachibowli. 


Samples taken from her were sent for whole-genome sequencing. Her health condition is good and she does not have any symptoms. Other passengers tested negative. Meanwhile, Public Health Director, G Srinivasa Rao has alerted people to be careful. "Not taking the vaccine at this point is "suicidal". Over 90,000 people in Hyderabad are due for a second dose but haven't taken. Across Telangana, this number is 25 Lakhs," he revealed.


90% public of Telangana has taken the first dose, second dose coverage is just 47%. December 31st is the deadline to complete 100% vaccinations. Meanwhile, Srinivasa Rao reiterated that the rule of Rs 1000 fine will be strictly imposed for not masking in public places/transport. He also asked the citizens to carry double vaccination certificates or "vaccine passports" when venturing outside to parks, public transport, theaters, pubs, etc.


"Health staff will randomly come and verify the same," he says. The Health Department is mulling the option of making double vaccination mandatory for venturing out in public places.
