Thailand needs to keep an eye on what strains of the COVID-19 virus are spreading in India. Because many times there is an epidemic of new mutant COVID virus in India. After a while, an epidemic of that strain was found in Thailand.
Looking back at the virusCOVID-19 The Delta species was first discovered in India in late 2020 and soon spread. Global pandemic And Thailand has a major epidemic of the Delta species in the middle of the year 2021.
In June 2022, India first identified the BA.2.75 subspecies of the COVID-19 virus. Subspecies BA.5, endemic in India, was replaced. and spread to many countries Thailand is currently experiencing a new outbreak of COVID-19. Caused by BA.2.75 virus strain.
India is starting to see an outbreak of the virus.Covid strain XBB which is a hybrid of the COVID-19 strains BA.2.10.1 and BA.2.75 (see photo), is believed to soon replace the BA.2.75 strain in India. Thailand can be ready for that After the onset of the BA.2.75 COVID-19 virus strain, there will soon bestrain XBB spread like India Because this new species is more contagious than the old species. and avoid immunity from vaccination or natural infection better than the original strain
current virusnew strain of covidIt takes only 3-4 months shorter than before to replace the original species. And has repeatedly caused new pandemics around the world. Fortunately, the new strains of the COVID virus do not cause serious illness and death like the Delta strain. Especially those who received 4 doses of the vaccine, that is, they received 2 full doses of the vaccine and then 2 booster doses.
