Suara.com – Since it was first detected in South Africa, the Omicron variant of the Covid-19 coronavirus has had the latest sub-variants, one of which is the Omicron stealth.
To date, there are at least five variants that have been registered with the WHO World Health Organization.
The Omicron subvariant, known as BA.2, is said to be more infectious. This was revealed by the WHO Covid-19 Technical Lead, Maria Van Kerkhove, who called the stealth Omicron more contagious than the dominant BA.1 subvariant.
Launching from the Times of India, WHO is currently monitoring BA.2 to see if this subvariant can increase the number of new infections, given that the BA.1 variant has dominated the world.
