Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 in India: Symptoms, severity

The Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG) on Sunday confirmed the detection of Omicron's subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 of the coronavirus in the country – the first one in Tamil Nadu and the other in Telangana. Because Omicron has spread swiftly, and has had many opportunities to mutate, it has also acquired specific mutations of its own. The first two were labelled BA.1 and BA.2. The current list now also includes BA.1.1, BA.3, BA.4 and BA.5.
