Israeli doctor believes he caught Omicron variant of Covid in London
Cardiologist Elad Maor suspects he caught virus at conference attended by more than 1,200 people.
The doctor who is one of the first people in the world to become infected with the Omicron variant says he believes he caught the virus when he was in London for a major medical conference attended by more than 1,200 health professionals.
The disclosure from Elad Maor will raise fears that the variant may have been in the UK much earlier than previously realised – and that other medics could have been exposed to it too.
