Mexico detected the first case of the BA.5 omicron subvariant, which has lower immunity to the Covid-19 vaccine.

But it is not the only one, since the BA.2.12.1. according to the platform GISAIDthere is already a record of a case of this type of covid-19.

This platform details that the case occurred in a 45-year-old man, who went to a laboratory of the Mexico state to undergo a test coronavirus.

“These new strains of omicron (BA.4 Y BA.5) are even more transmissible than BA.2which is the dominant coronavirus in Ireland and across the globe. We keep in mind that BA.4 Y BA.5 they have growth advantages, making it easier to transmit. All of this highlights the importance of surveillance and sequencing,” explained the expert from the WHO.
