Watch: What To Know About the New Covid Variant XBB1.5 and The Symptoms to Be Aware Of

A new COVID variety, a fusion of two previous strains that is far more contagious than its predecessors, is gaining traction in the United States, but what exactly is it, how serious is it, and what are the symptoms?

According to World Health Organization senior epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove, XBB.1.5 is the most transmissible Omicron sub-variant discovered thus far. It spreads quickly due to the alterations that allow it to cling to cells and proliferate effectively. Because variant XBB.1.5 is highly contagious, everyone is at risk, even if they have previously been infected.

The omicron subvariant XBB.1.5 has sparked concerns about another possible wave of Covid cases following the hectic Christmas travel season. According to the CDC, around 40% of confirmed U.S. The XBB.1.5 strain is responsible for 20% of Covid cases, up from 20% a week before. In the Northeast, approximately 75% of confirmed cases are XBB.1.5.

What we know so far about the XBB1.5 covid variant:

What Exactly Is XBB.1.5?

According to scientists, XBB.1.5 has a mutation that allows it to better adhere to human cells, potentially making it more effective at infecting humans than other varieties.

XBB.1.5 is a highly contagious “recombinant” variant that arose from two distinct BA.2 mutations. It is connected to the XBB variety, which was previously responsible for an increase in COVID in Singapore. The XBB.1.5 variety has now accounted for more than 40% of cases in the United States, according to tracking data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the Midwest, however, the prevalence of XBB.1.5 is substantially lower, accounting for only 6% of cases.

According to the CDC, the XBB.1.5 variation is responsible for around 75% of confirmed cases in the Northeast, which includes New England, New Jersey, and New York.

Dr. Barbara Mahon, director of CDC’s Coronavirus and Other Respiratory Viruses Division said, “ . It’s not clear yet where this version of omicron came from, but it appears to be spreading quickly here. There’s no indication it causes more severe illness than any other omicron virus.”

XBB.1.5 symptoms are like earlier variations and can include shortness of breath and low oxygen levels that would require emergency medical intervention.
