A new strain of Covid-19, dubbed “the most transmissible sub-variant which has been found yet,” has been circulating the nation, and Prime Minister Hun Sen has warned everyone to stay careful.
In Kampong Cham province, National Road 7 is being rebuilt and upgraded. Yesterday, Mr. Hun Sen made his remarks during a groundbreaking ceremony for the project.
With the “recombinant” new strain of Omicron dubbed “Kraken,” the new COVID variation XBB.1.5 is the most contagious.
We genuinely don’t understand the process by which the Covid-19 virus will change into new versions. The Covid-19 vaccination must therefore be administered in booster doses. Twenty million further tablets will soon arrive in Cambodia, bringing the total number of doses in stock to roughly 7 million.
Experts claim that the “Kraken” strain, which is descended from the Omicron XBB sub-variant and a hybrid between the strains BA.2.75 and BA.2.10.1, has taken over as the predominant strain in the USA.
Since the WHO first expressed concerns last October, the original XBB form has already triggered waves of illness in nations like Singapore and India.
The most contagious strain to yet has been identified, according to Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO’s Covid-19 technical chief, during a news briefing in January.
“The Covid-19 virus has now undergone a series of mutations, but the vaccine remains an important tool to protect people from infection with the new Covid-19 virus, especially the new sub-variants Omicron virus,” said Or Vandine, chairwoman of the National Adhoc Covid-19 Vaccination Committee, yesterday.
