Recently, the new sub-mutant COVID-19 virus, with cases of infection reported worldwide, is showing signs of spreading in the United States as well.

According to ABC Broadcasting, on the 31st of last month, the genome안전놀이터 sequencing team, a genetic analysis organization at Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas, first confirmed the BA.2.86 mutation. On the same day , it was reported that one case of BA.2.86

variant infection was found in Ohio . Accordingly, the number of states in the United States where the BA.2.86 mutation was discovered increased to five, starting with Michigan, followed by New York and Virginia. BA.2.86 is a mutation first discovered in Denmark last July and has since been discovered worldwide. It is making health authorities in each country nervous because the number of mutations in the spike protein is about 30 more than BA.2 . The spike protein is the weapon that the COVID-19 virus uses to infiltrate the human body. The more mutations there are, the more likely it is to penetrate the existing immune system. ※ ‘Your report becomes news’ [KakaoTalk] Search YTN and add channel [Phone] 02-398-8585 [Email] social @
