Nova vaga de Covid ligada à variante Omicron

By Ninian Carter

March 30, 2022 - As infeções com Covid-19 na Ásia ultrapassaram 100 milhões, quando a
região assiste a um pico de casos ligados à subvariante BA.2 Omicron.

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.
