During an interview with KREM 2 News, a CBS-affiliated news station, Velazquez stated that BA.2 is more contagious than the original virus and causes various symptoms, including dizziness. Despite the fact that the number of cases is declining, researchers in Denmark have discovered that the subvariant can re-infect persons who have already been infected with omicron, according to CNBC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      According to the World Health Organization, BA.2 is responsible for roughly 40% of all newly identified cases that have been genetically sequenced around the world to far.

An investigation carried out in South Africa indicated that BA.2 did not produce more severe disease than the original variety; however, a recent investigation carried out in Japan found that it could potentially induce more severe symptoms. Moreover, the World Health Organization’s COVID technical lead Maria Van Kerkhove stated earlier this month that it is unclear whether BA.2 varies from BA.1 in terms of severity, and she highlighted that obtaining the vaccine is still the most effective strategy to avoid severe COVID-19 cases.

 

“We need people to be aware that this virus is still in circulation and that it is still evolving,” Van Kerkhove explained. In order to minimize our exposure to this virus, whichever strain is currently in circulation, it is critical that we take proactive measures to do so.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Omicron’s subvariant, also known as BA.2, supposedly causes different symptoms than earlier strains, according to Spokane Regional Health District Health Officer Francisco Velazquez.

BA.2 is more contagious than the original, according to Velazquez, who spoke with CBS-affiliated news station KREM 2 News. It also causes distinct symptoms, such as dizziness. Despite the fact that the number of cases is decreasing, researchers in Denmark have discovered that the subvariant can reinfect persons who have already been infected with omicron, according to CNBC.

According to the World Health Organization, BA.2 accounts for roughly 40% of all new cases that have been genetically sequenced around the world.

Although a South African study determined that BA.2 does not produce more severe disease than the original version, a recent investigation in Japan discovered that it may induce more severe symptoms. Furthermore, Maria Van Kerkhove, the World Health Organization’s COVID technical director, stated earlier this month that it is unclear whether BA.2 varies from BA.1 in terms of severity, and that obtaining the vaccine is still the best strategy to avoid severe COVID-19 cases.

 

“We need people to be informed that this virus is still circulating and evolving,” Van Kerkhove explained. “That’s why, whichever variety is circulating, it’s critical that we take steps to restrict our exposure to this virus.”
