News of the Week: The New Variant
The number of Covid-19 cases is increasing once more, and despite the fact that the virus isn't killing as many people as it formerly did because of immunizations, it is nonetheless spreading harm globally. The last thing the economy needs is a flood of employee absences due to illness at a time when labor shortages are already crippling airports and destroying the hotel industry. The most contagious and transmissible mutation so far discovered is what's causing the most recent round of illnesses. According to sequence information submitted to the World Health Organization , this variation is currently responsible for roughly half of all coronavirus cases worldwide. The rising cases in Europe and USA remind the public of the past summer and serve as a warning for the future. Additionally, ‘the Omicron BA.5 variant is causing more re-infection than previous strains.’
