This Group Is Vulnerable to Severity Due to Omicron Stealth, Anyone?

Suara.com – The BA.2 or Omicron Siluman corona virus variant has spread in various countries, and has also been detected in Indonesia. The situation raises questions and concerns about what will happen next in the pandemic.

Reporting from The Desert News, the United States has experienced a decline in Covid-19 cases recently. But with the BA.2 variant on the rise, there is some concern about what will happen next in this pandemic.

Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and professor of health policy and management at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, told CNN that the BA.2 variant can be worrying for some individuals.

In particular, anyone who is “susceptible to severe illness from Covid-19 despite being vaccinated should be concerned about the coronavirus in general,” Wen told CNN.

He said that “Covid-19 infection will result in mild illness” for most people.

But, he told CNN, “those with moderate or severe immune compromise or with some underlying medical condition – infection can still result in hospitalization.”

Experts have suggested that coronavirus cases are expected to increase in the coming weeks due to the BA.2 subvariant.
There are a number of reasons for the potential upside. First, cases have increased in Europe and Asia, meaning the coronavirus is more prominent across the globe.

At the same time, society has reopened more with the restrictions being relaxed. As people interact more, COVID-19 cases are expected to increase.

“I expect that we might see an increase in cases here in the United States because, just about a week ago, the CDC came out with a modification of their metrics to what would be recommended to cover indoors. , and most countries are currently in those zones, where the use of masks indoors is not required,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading infectious disease expert, told KGTV last week.
