Ghana announced on Wednesday that they have detected cases of the omicron variant in passengers who arrived in the country ten days ago.

The passengers had arrived from Nigeria and South Africa and were picked through testing of passengers arriving at Ghana's Kokota International airport.

It was detected by virologists that weekly samples of 200 passengers arriving at the airport were of 28% arriving from Nigeria and South Africa.

And in Nigeria on Wednesday, public servants in Abuja queued to receive the COVID-19 vaccine which was made mandatory by the government.

Several civil servants without a vaccination card or a negative PCR test were chased away by security agents who prevented them from entering public buildings and offices.

Nigeria is the first West African country to have recorded the omicron variant since it was first detected in South Africa.
