BANGKOK (Reuters) – A Thai woman has tested positive to the Omicron variant of the coronavirus in the Southeast Asian country’s first reported case of local transmission, a health ministry official said on Monday.

The woman contracted the virus from her husband, a Colombian who returned to Thailand from Nigeria in November, the official told a daily health ministry briefing.
