عدد الإصابات بفيروس كوفيد يرتفع من جديد في آسيا

By Ninian Carter

March 30, 2022 - عدد الإصابات بكوفيد19- في آسيا تجاوز 100 مليون، في الوقت الذي تشهد فيه المنطقة ارتفاعاً في عدد الإصابات بالمتغير الفرعي أوميكرون BA.2.

According to Reuters news agency, coronavirus infections in Asia have passed 100 million, as the region grapples with a resurgence in cases fuelled by the BA.2 Omicron sub-variant.

The region, home to more than half the world’s population, is seeing about a million new Covid-19 cases every two days – 21% of globally reported cases.

The highly contagious but less deadly BA.2 sub-variant has pushed the figures to greater highs in recent weeks in countries such as South Korea, Singapore and Vietnam.

BA.2 now represents nearly 86% of all sequenced cases, according to the World Health Organisation.
