New Covid sub-variant may 'outpace Omicron' after 400 cases found in UK, scientists say
Coronavirus variant of Omicron could be set to destroy its current version, just weeks after 400 cases were diagnosed in the UK.The new Omicron BA.2 strain has been in the UK since November but has also made appearances in Europe and India.And last week, it was classed as a “variant under investigation” by the UK Health Security Agency.The current variant, which outpaced Delta in a matter of days at the end of 2021, is known as Omicron BA 1.More than 6,400 confirmed cases of the new strain have been found in Denmark, which is now believed to be the epicentre, The Mirror reports.However, Anders Fomsgaard, chief physician and virus researcher at the Statens Serum Institut (SSI), told Danish media: “We cannot see any difference in hospitalization numbers, death rates with BA.2, so it is not something that worries us yet.“It is still a new piece in the Covid game.“Right now we should just treat it as yet another variant until new data should eventually show other results.”And virologist Dr Tom Peacock said that he is confident that the new strain is “not a Delta to Omicron change”.He claimed that this will be a “slower and more subtle” switch.He added: “That said, I would not be surprised if BA.2 slowly replaces it over the coming months with a slightly more 'optimised' mutations.”Let us know your thoughts on the changes in restrictions in the UK in the comments below“Very early observations from India and Denmark suggest there is no dramatic difference in severity.”England will be virtually restriction-free on Thursday, despite 94,397 cases of the Covid being reported in the 24-period from January 23 to 24.The UK overall has reported more than 154k deaths since the pandemic began, with 16 million cases since March 2020,
