Could COVID-19 symptoms lead to brain damage?

What do I need to know about ‘stealth Omicron?’

Across the world, scientists have found a subvariant of the highly contagious Omicron. It has been nicknamed ‘stealth Omicron’ but scientists call it BA.2. More details can be found here.

BA.2 could be spreading faster than BA.1, the original Omicron variant. Scientists are investigating stealth Omicron because it has the potential to replace the original Omicron variant.

Because this the subvariant is so transmissible, it could lead to even more COVID-19 cases.

In Denmark, the number of subvariant cases has now exceeded that of the original Omicron variant. BA.2 is on the rise in the United Kingdom and Germany as well.

The first evaluation shows no difference in hospitalizations between BA.1 and BA.2.

Vaccines are  also expected to have an effect against the subvariant.
