India reported 7,189 fresh coronavirus infections and 387 new fatalities, said the health ministry today, pushing the national tally to 3,47,79,815 and the total death count to 4,79,520. 

The active cases stand at 77,032 while the country's total cases of Omicron, the newest coronavirus variant, has increased to 415.

The Centre has said the Omicron variant is at least thrice more transmissible than the Delta and asked the states and Union Territories to "activate" war rooms, analyze even small trends and surges and take prompt containment action.

State governments have been imposing new restrictions in view of the rising Omicron cases at a time when Christmas and New Year celebrations threaten to exponentially push up the variant's case count.
