New BA.2 sub-lineages | #OmicronVariant updates BA.2Alias of B.1.1.529.2 new: BA.2.1Alias of B.1.1.529.2.1, #UnitedKingdom #lineage  BA.2.2   Alias of B.1.1.529.2.2, #HongKong lineage BA.2.3Alias of B.1.1.529.2.3, lineage in #Philippines and other countries

DJ No idea how "official" this is....[url][/url] or 

[url][/url] or does not (yet) use these sub-variants of BA.2 (yet)...[url][/url] or also only has "BA.2"...

[url],-constantly-spawning-newer-subvariants-and-causing-reinfections--new-surge-expected-in-america[/url] or,-constantly-spawning-newer-subvariants-and-causing-reinfections--new-surge-expected-in-america is making-more or less-the claim infection with one type of BA.2 may offer limited/no protection against getting infected with other BA.2 subvariants...

[url][/url] or at least links BA.2.2 to Hong Kong (DJ-I believed BA.2.1 would be linked to DenmarK not UK...BA.2.3 Philippines...cases +1%, deaths may be just started there...)...

DJ-Very likely more BA.2 subvariants are around...TMN names Brazil, Cambodia and Thailand as likely to have their own BA.2 subvariants...

[url][/url] or BA.2 at in my understanding BA.2 in India very likely could see new sub-variants....India cases -40% (but if testing is "limited" numbers may not be the best indicator...). 

Omicron changed this pandemic...(extreme) high spread BA.2 30% higher then BA.1 ...BA.2.2 would spread even 45% more then BA.1...A very likely next step could be increase in viral loads...the "drive" in the virus is to create as many virusses as it can...(step 1=high infection, step 2=increasing viral load) ....resulting in more severe disease...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
