BA.2.86 is a subvariant of Omicron, the dominant strain of Covid-19 worldwide. It has a number of mutations that make it more transmissible than previous variants, and it is also thought to be better at evading the body’s immune response.

The first case of BA.2.86 was detected in India in May, and it has since been found in other countries, including the UK, Denmark, Israel, and the US.

The WHO is currently monitoring BA.2.86, and it is not yet clear how severe it is or how well it will respond to vaccines. However, early studies suggest that it may be more transmissible than BA.2, the previous dominant subvariant of Omicron.

There are concerns that BA.2.86 could cause a surge in cases this summer, as people travel and gather more freely.

The WHO has said that it is “too early to say” whether BA.2.86 will cause a wave of infections, but it is urging countries to be prepared.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has said that it is “monitoring” BA.2.86, but it does not believe that it is currently causing a significant increase in cases.

The UKHSA has said that the most effective way to protect against Covid-19 is to get vaccinated and boosted.

People who are at risk of serious illness from Covid-19 should also consider taking antivirals.

It is important to stay up-to-date with the latest information on Covid-19, and to follow the latest guidance from the WHO and your local health authorities.

Here are some additional things to know about BA.2.86:

  • It is thought to be more transmissible than previous variants, but it is not yet clear by how much.
