According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention the variant is a descendant of BA.2.86-also know as the Pirola variant, which came from Omicron. Scientists have said the new strain appears to be more transmissible. Alongside the cough and shortness of breath familiar to many who have had the virus before, symptoms for the new strain also include diarrhoea and fatigue.

But it doesn’t excuse the fact that it’s still out there, because it hasn’t been affecting our normal life as much anymore. I didn’t think we should forget about it ,because it’sstrillsomethng that affects other people’s lives.

I’m not worried about Covid, I think offset people it’s like a flow when like cold sand things, then we have to do kind of just move on. Eventually it’s always gonna be that it’s difficult to do about it. I think the government definitely could’ve done more time to stop it .
