Is Omicron sub-variant threatening Portugals tourism sector recovery?

LISBON, June 2 (Reuters) - An Omicron sub-variant has fuelled a surge in COVID-19 cases in Portugal that now has the worlds second-highest infection rate, potentially threatening the tourism sectors recovery.

How high is the Omicron subvariant BA in Germany?

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the proportion of the omicron subvariant BA.5 is still at a low level in Germany. However, according to the latest RKI weekly report (May 23), the proportion of BA.5 continued to increase and doubled from 1.2 to 2.5 percent.

What is the Omikron BA 5 variant?

“Omikron BA.5 is a separate Omikron variant. In addition to the omicron, the variant has a mutation on the spike protein, emphasized the corona expert. This is the so-called mutation L452R, which can already be found in the Delta variant.

What is the difference between Delta and Omicron infections?

Although omicron with its various subtypes is usually much milder than delta, severe symptoms can also occur in rare cases. Additionally, it is not yet clear what long-term consequences an omicron infection can have.

Along with being harder for neutralizing antibodies to locate, BA.5 is more transmissible than other omicron subvariants. Like other omicron subvariants, BA.5 infections are milder than infections with other COVID strains, like delta. Do boosters protect against omicron infection?

What are the different types of Omicron variants?

Is BA 5 an omicron sub variant?

Along with being harder for neutralizing antibodies to locate, BA.5 is more transmissible than other omicron subvariants. Like other omicron subvariants, BA.5 infections are milder than infections with other COVID strains, like delta. Do boosters protect against omicron infection?

What do we know about the Omicron variant?

“Many Omicron variants, both Omicron and sub-lineages of Omicron, have mutations from all prior four variants of concern—Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta,” Singh said. For instance, BA.4 and BA.5 retained some of the mutations in Delta, including a part of the genome called the L452 residue.

What are the new strains of Omicron?

The incline in case numbers comes down to two new strains, BA.4 and BA.5, which are sub-variants of Omicron. They were labelled as “variants of concern” by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control in May.

What is the difference between the BA4 and Ba5 variants?

Both BA.5 and BA.4 are omicron variants with distinct origins. So they do not descend from BA.1, BA.2 or BA.3, but rather have the common omicron precursor, the original variant, i.e. their origin. The omicron variants also have a mutation on the so-called spike protein, which increases their virulence, i.e. their ability to be infected.

The study — published in The Lancet — used data from the ZOE COVID tracking study to compare symptoms of more than 4,990 people who had the delta variant with the same amount of people who had the omicron variant. Is there a difference in omicron and delta variants symptoms?

What are the symptoms of Omicron and Delta variant?
