NEW DELHI: Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana on Wednesday said that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is a silent killer, and that he is taking an unusually long time to recover from the strain.
The CJI said this after President of the Supreme Court Bar Association and Senior Advocate Vikas Singh requested the top court to revert to full physical hearing.
“There is a jump of 15,000 cases now,” CJI Ramana responded when Singh raised the demand. “It is Omicron, it is much milder,” Singh said.
“It is a silent killer, you know. I suffered in first wave but recovered in 4 days, but now in this wave, it has been 25 days and I am still suffering,” the CJI replied.
