- Novavax 3 doses have the level of immunity in the blood against the virus. Omicron Omicron as well as 3 doses of mRNA vaccine (BNT162b2), Bhiman JN and research team from South Africa The results of the study were published in bioRxiv on July 17, 2022.
- Covid-19 virus Omicron subspecies BA.2.75 Originally found for the first time in India. and spread to many countries with data from research Summarized, as mentioned a few days ago, can be summarized as follows:
A research team from the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG) provided information via local media (Times of India, 4 July 2022) that subspecies ofOmicron Omicron The many detected in India is a concern, including BA.2.74, BA.2.75, and BA.2.76 were initially assessed. More likely to have viral fitness BA.5
Yamasoba D and colleagues from Japan The results were published in bioRxiv on July 15, 2022. The study found that BA.2.75 are characterized by drug resistance
Antibodies used in many therapies same as Omicron pre-existing subspecies But some antibody drugs It can also be effective in managing infections such as Regdanvimab, Sotrovimab, Tixagevimab.
while Cao YR from Peking University Publish Informal Laboratory Study Results point out that BA.2.75 are more likely to bind to the ACE2 receptor BA.4 and BA.5 But in terms of resistance to immunity Study by looking at immunity from people who have been vaccinated. found to be infected with COVID-19. BA.2.75 More resistant than BA.2.12.1, but may be less than BA.4 and BA.5, except in those who were previously infected with Delta strains. BA.2.75 is more resistant than those infected with Omicron BA.1 strains. and BA.2 before
However, it will have to wait for the official results of the study. and from other research in the near future to confirm the immune resistance characteristics of BA.2.75 Recently, Rajnarayanan R from Arkansas State University has reported an update on the detection of the BA.2.75 subspecies that caught the eye of the world. Interestingly, it was reported that Found in Thailand from samples of specimens from Trang Province From 28 June 2022
The epidemic situation in Thailand is still ongoing.
A recent report on 18 July 2022 by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) indicates that Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 In Europe, the epidemic is severe. and causing a significant increase in the number of patients to be hospitalized at all ages; and ventilator markedly increased in people aged 40 and over
Doctor Thira I reiterate that Thailand must be careful. Because the nature of the disease is often consistent. Wherever in the world And there is a high chance that we will be dealing with outbreaks with different subspecies at the same time. If not protected
from the knowledge we have now NO.4 NO.5 and BA.2.75 that is not shoddy, able to live, earn a living, study But you should always protect yourself. no matter what species If we live consciously Using the right knowledge and not being careless will greatly reduce the risk. Vaccination with booster needles is necessary. And what is absolutely necessary is…wearing a mask correctly is very important…
