The severity of Covid-19 has decreased in the last few days. The number of positive cases has gradually declined. In this order, Omicron’s new variants are creating a stir. Recently, a new variant called Omicron BA.4.6 is spreading in many countries, including US and UK. With this, positive cases are increasing again.
According to the details, the new variant continues to spread in the UK. Meanwhile, the UK Health and Safety Organization said in a statement that 3.3% of all samples collected in their country were of this type. Officials revealed that this number has reached 9 percent recently. On the other hand, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that more than 9% of cases of this variant are being registered in the US as well.
Medical experts say that Omicron BA.4.6 is also similar to BA.4. However, the new variant also attacks those who have been vaccinated. Doctors have clarified that, like other variants of Omicron, the chances of disease severity and death are less.
On the other side, India recorded 5,108 new positive cases in the past 24 hours, while 19 people have died due to the virus. According to the latest bulletin of the Union Health Department, there are currently 45,749 active cases across the country.
