COVID: Should We Fear a New Winter Wave of Infections?

September 25, 2023

Concerns are growing over the new variants of the COVID-19 virus, such as EG.5 and BA.2.86. In August, EG.5 emerged as a major variant in the United States, and the World Health Organization classified it as a "variant of interest," indicating that its genetic changes give it an advantage and its prevalence is on the rise. The other new variant that scientists are watching closely is BA.2.86, nicknamed Pirola. Descended from a different Omicron variant, BA.2.86 has been definitively tied to a few dozen cases of COVID-19 across four continents, but experts suspect it is more widespread. Experts point out that the weather conditions during autumn and winter are more favorable for the transmission of the virus. Coupled with a decline in population immunity, the infection situation in the coming months deserves close attention.


To prevent the potential surge of infections during the winter season, it is crucial to implement effective preventive measures. Here are some key steps we can take:


To effectively defend against COVID-19 variant, it is important to follow key preventive measures. These include widespread vaccination, practicing good hygiene such as regular handwashing and respiratory etiquette, and wearing masks in high-risk settings. Additionally, maintaining physical distance, avoiding crowded places, and staying updated on local guidelines are essential. By adhering to these measures, we can significantly reduce the risk of infection and protect ourselves and others from the spread of COVID-19.
