“If the case denominator is bigger, it is certain that hospital admissions or ICUs (Intensive Care Unit) will increase,” Khairy while sharing

Khairy, however, said that the Omicron variant of Covid-19 is less dangerous than the Delta one which was responsible for the second wave in the country.

He explained that 32 cases or 50 per cent of the total Omicron infections detected in Malaysia occurred among Umrah pilgrims.

Among the measures taken by the government is to postpone the umrah journey with effect from January 8.
