It all started in China and the dangerous coronavirus shattered all the countries of the globe. China recovered well while the nations like USA, India, Brazil and others are impacted badly because of the pandemic. China is now back and is battling with the biggest outbreak after the pandemic started since two years. The new variant named 'Stealth Omicron' is now spreading on a faster note and the government imposed lockdown across the nation. The northeastern province is badly hit when compared to others. As per the reports, the current outbreak is driven by Stealth Omicron or the B.A.2 lineage. The UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) announced that they are investigating the variant.
The new variant is spreading on a faster note than the original as per the research. The entire world is recovering slowly after the third wave of the pandemic. The World Health Organization (WHO) is yet to respond about the new variant and is monitoring the situation. There are talks that the new variant that emerged in China is spreading to other nations. Denmark reported more than 50,000 new infections in a week and it is due to stealth omicron. The researchers are investigating more about the variant. Cornelius Römer, a bioinformatician at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel in Switzerland told that the new variant is not a descendant and it is a sibling.
