After Ile-de-France and Alsace, a new case of the Omicron variant has just been confirmed this time in Pays-de-la-Loire, where the epidemiological situation is "worrying".
This Thursday evening, the Regional Health Agency (ARS) announced that a woman had tested positive in Vendée.
"She was returning from a trip to South Africa on November 25," said Managing Director Jean-Jacques Coiplet.
The Omicron variant of the coronavirus was classified at the end of last week as "of concern" by the World Health Organization (WHO).
It has already been detected in around 20 countries, having first been identified in South Africa.
Suspected of being more contagious, experts also fear that it is more resistant to the immunity conferred by vaccines.
This Thursday, the incidence rate in Pays-de-la-Loire was 293 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, slightly below the national average.
