She said a detailed discussion was held on Omicron and added that she had asked the health officials to intensify their steps to rise to any exigency, although there was so far no report of the new variant being detected. 

Door-to-door inspection to ascertain vaccination of residents would be taken up on 4 and 5 December, she said.
