Cairo: Saudi Arabia confirmed its first case of the Omicron COVID-19 variant coming from a north African country, the state news agency said on Wednesday.

Omicron, first reported in southern Africa and which the World Health Organization (WHO) said carries a 'very high' risk of infection surges, has triggered global alarm, with border closures casting a shadow over a nascent economic recovery from a two-year pandemic.
