According to recent reports, a new COVID version far worse than Omicron has been spreading throughout China, the USA, the UK, India, and many other nations. It all came after the COVID strain policy was released.
According to the data, there are now 9,000 deaths per day in China due to COVID. This resulted from the government loosening up on their strict “Zero-COVID” policy.
The total number of deaths in China was at least 18.6 million cases as of December 2022. By mid-January 2023, that number might increase daily to as many as 3.7 million COVID incidents.
Just in time for the New Year 2023, a recently found Omicron mutation is swiftly spreading across the United States, similar to what it did in China. In the United States, this strain, also known as XBB.1.5, is thought to be the cause of 41% of confirmed COVID cases. According to the research, XBB.1.5 is present in more than 70% of COVID cases from New York to Maine.
India saw a decline in daily COVID-19 cases as the country reported 173 new infections in the past 24 hours, taking the cumulative tally to 45 million, the officials said on Monday. Similarly, the UK also faces challenges with the new COVID variant.
There are currently 665,339,248 confirmed cases in 299 countries and territories, and 6,698,470 people have died from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak since January 02, 2023.
The expert also expressed that the XBB15 is a unique recombination of BA2 strains, and they are still determining the efficacy of the existing vaccines’ work.
The present scenario can be taken as a wake-up call to all global citizens as the new variant is going to be said that spread 101 times faster than the Omicron one.
