New Omicron XBB.1.5 super variant spotted in India

(ORDO NEWS) — India has recorded the first case of the XBB-1.5 omicron subtype that is causing havoc in the US. According to INSACOG, this case was identified in the state of Gujarat.

According to the researchers, the increase in Covid cases in the US is due to this sub-variant. Compared to other sub-variants, it is reported to be more transmissive.

Following the discovery of the first case of XBB-1.5 in Gujarat, the neighboring state of Maharashtra was put on high alert.

The Maharashtra Health Department says every effort is being made to contain the infection. Whole genome sequencing is currently underway.

A virologist at Johns Hopkins University claims that the virus also has the ability to stick to the cells of the human body as a result of further changes.
