First identification of the new SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) in Italy [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
We identified the first case in Italy of SARS-CoV-2 B.1.1.529 variant by whole genome sequencing in an Italian subject travelling from Mozambique. Specific mutation profiles deserve further investigations to clarify potential effects on vaccination efficacy.This case highlights the crucial role of rapid and continuous surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 variant circulation.
