'It's Coming': N.Y. Gov. Kathy Hochul Issues Omicron Warning, Declares State of Emergency

Source: Newsweek

New York Governor Kathy Hochul has declared a state of emergency over the Omicron variant of COVID-19, stating, "It's coming." The variant is believed to be possibly more contagious and immune-resistant than previous COVID-19 variants.

"We've taken extraordinary action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and combat this pandemic," Hochul wrote in a statement. "While the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it's coming."

The state of emergency will allow officials to more quickly acquire critical supplies for combatting the pandemic, Hochul's declaration said. It will also allow the state Department of Health to limit non-essential, non-urgent procedures for hospitals and healthcare systems with limited capacity. This way, they can focus on caring for those most needing treatment for COVID-19.

The emergency protocols will take place December 3, and will be reassessed based on the latest COVID-19 data on January 15.

President Biden will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other African countries to try to contain a troubling new variant of the coronavirus, senior administration officials said on Friday, though they said it would be impossible to prevent it from entering the United States.

Starting on Monday, the administration will prohibit travelers from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi from coming to the United States, the officials said.

The travel ban will not apply to American citizens or lawful permanent residents, officials said. But they will need to show a negative coronavirus test before coming to the United States.
