Omicron’s rapidly spreading and mutated variant has become the leading cause of covid infections everywhere in the world. Ten weeks ago, it was discovered in southern Africa.
93 percent of last month’s coronavirus samples are Omicron variants, according to the World Health Organization’s weekly update report. They include sub-variants like BA.1, BA.1.1, BA.2, and BA.3.
In the survey, 96 percent of cases involved BA.1 or BA.1.1. However, BA.2, a variant that differs from the original, has seen an increase in cases. It has been reported that this mutant also contains the spike protein, which is present on the surface of the virus and enters human cells.
GISAID has received cases of the “BA.2” subvariant mutation from 57 countries, according to the WHO. The WHO reports that cases of this subvariant have now been reported in more than half of the total cases of infection in certain countries.
According to the UN Health Agency, there is little data on this sub-variant, so a detailed study has been requested on it to determine its infectiousness and safety on immunity. The possibility of dodging its virus has also been detected.
