The new cases of corona in the country are decreasing and the scope of the epidemic is also shrinking, but in the meantime, the Omicron variants of the corona in the country have sub-variants BA.4 and BA.5 (Omicron Sub Variant BA.5). Cases have come. Although cases of these new variants have come in only a few states, but the risk of spreading them also remains. People in whom cases of all these variants of Omicron have come. He has no travel history. In such a situation, it is being feared that this variant is present in the country. In view of this, surveillance has also been increased. Especially in areas where infected have been found. Contact tracing is being done there and people who came in contact with the infected are being identified and investigated.
Regarding these two sub-variants of Omicron, experts say that these variants do not pose a threat in the country, but there is a need to keep an eye on the symptoms of the infected. If the patients have the same symptoms as the old ones and the cases are coming like the flu, then it is not a matter of concern, but if the symptoms of corona are found somewhat different in the patients of BA.4 and BA.5 sub-variants of Omicron. There is a need to be cautious.
Professor Dr. Yudveer Singh of AIIMS New Delhi says that there is currently immunity against Corona in the country. Vaccination is also going on fast. In such a situation, there will be no threat from these variants, but the virus is mutating and new variants are coming. In such a situation, special attention should be kept on the infected of these variants. Areas where infected have been found. How many cases of Kovid are coming in the hospitals there. Must see this too. If hospitalization is not increasing then there is nothing to worry about. In this situation, both these variants will also remain the same as Omicron and due to them there will be no increase in the cases of infection.
Variant of concern is not BA.5
