Coronavirus Symptoms: Know about the dominant COVID strain circulating in the country currently and its typical symptoms

The BA.2.75 sub lineage of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus is the dominant strain of the virus in the country currently, and this means this variant accounts for majority of the COVID cases being reported in the country, media reports have said citing input from a review meeting held on Friday by the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Consortium on Genomics (INSACOG), the national consortium of government institutions.

The experts have found that 70% of the sequenced samples had BA.2.75 lineage, the reports have said and have added that the recent surge in COVID cases in Delhi might be because of this variant.

A report from Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) in the second week of August had also confirmed that BA.2.75 is the dominant strain circulating in the country. “We did a study where we wanted to know which sub-variant has the highest transmission. We analysed data from 90 samples in August and found that more than half of the patients were infected with BA 2.75. It is the leading cause of transmission and it spreads faster,” Dr Suresh Kumar, Medical Director of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) told news agency ANI.
