Researchers have concluded after a comparative study between BA.2 and BA.5 variants on 27 thousand corona infected, among the corona infected involved in the research, 12306 were infected with BA.5 during 25 April to 10 June 2022 and 15396 BA. were positive from the .2 variant.
Tips to protect against these variants
When the data of these infected was prepared, it was found that the risk of reinfection from variant BA.5 is high. However, after vaccination and booster dose, the risk from these variants has been very low and the cases of death have not increased. However, scientists have advised people to avoid these variants. Epidemiologist Dr Jugal Kishore says that no sub-variant of Omicron is dangerous. Delta has since been followed by Omicron and many of its sub-variants, but these have not increased hospitalizations. The effect of these variants is mild and the infected are getting flu-like symptoms. Patients are recovering within two to three days.
