The World Health Organization (WHO) has alerted India and some other countries with the confirmation of the new subform BA.2.75 of the Omicron variant of the corona. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that this new form of corona virus has been detected in India and other member countries of the organization.
Ghebreyesus said in a press conference that in the last two weeks, there has been an increase of about 30 percent in new cases of corona worldwide. Four of the WHO’s six sub-sectors saw an increase last week. The corona wave is going on in Europe and America due to Omicron’s BA.4 and BA.5. Meanwhile, a new sub strain named BA.2.75 has been detected in countries like India. This is being monitored.
New look found in 10 countries: Soumya Swaminathan
Upon detection of BA.2.75, WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan posted a video on Twitter saying that a new subtype had been found. It is being called BA.2.75. It was first reported from India and then from 10 other countries. There are only a few sequences available for analysis of this subtype, but few changes have been observed in its spike protein. So it is too early to say anything more about it now. Whether it can penetrate the immune system or is too complex to treat is still difficult to say.
