This Wednesday (1), the third case of a patient with the Ômicron variant in Brazil was confirmed. The 29-year-old man from Ethiopia landed in Guarulhos without symptoms, but took the test that tested positive for covid-19 last Saturday. The man had been vaccinated with two doses of Pfizer's immunizer.

The sample from this third case was genetically sequenced by the Adolfo Lutz Institute.

In addition, two other patients, a 41-year-old man and a 37-year-old woman, from South Africa, had confirmation of the presence of the Ômicron variant. The verification was carried out by Adolfo Lutz yesterday afternoon, after genetic sequencing carried out by the laboratory of the Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein.

The couple had been vaccinated with Janssen's immunizing agent in South Africa, according to information updated this Wednesday (1) by the municipal surveillance of São Paulo.
