Wary of a potential surge in Omicron Covid-19 cases after the Christmas and New Year celebrations, the Department of Medical Services (DMS) is urging people to strictly comply with preventive measures to keep a lid on the pandemic.

"I must admit the Omicron variant appears to be spreading faster than Delta," DMS director-general Somsak Akksilp said on Tuesday.

If infected people show mild symptoms, they can be treated in isolation at home, Dr Somsak said.
