President Moon Jae-in ordered top government officials Thursday to swiftly implement all anti-epidemic measures to fend off the fast-spreading Omicron coronavirus variant.

"The grim reality is that Omicron has become a dominant strain," Moon said, according to Cheong Wa Dae spokesperson Park Kyung-mee.

The president, who is on an official visit to Egypt, made the call as health authorities brace for a surge in Omicron, which has already swept across Europe, the United States and other countries around the world.

Moon asked that authorities keep citizens informed about the domestic virus situation and seek public cooperation on social distancing rules.

Amid concerns over rising infections, which could soon cause disruptions to the health care system, Moon highlighted recent declines in critically-ill COVID patients across the country.

He also noted that two years ago today, South Korea confirmed its first COVID-19 case, and he thanked medical workers for their hard work and devotion since.
