The bioinformatics professor says the best way to fight the current wave of coronavirus infections, which is fueled by Omicron BA4 and BA5 sub-options, is to vaccinate or strengthen.
Professor Tulio de Olivier, director of the Research and Innovation Platform at KwaZulu-Natal (KRISP), says the new subvariants have demonstrated the ability to easily break through immunity from previous Omicron infections, but show less ability to break through immunity. people who have been vaccinated and have previously suffered a coronavirus infection.
De Oliveira says hospitalizations and mortality remain low despite the current surge in coronavirus cases caused by sub-options BA4 and BA5. However, in a series of tweets, he says that in the current wave of coronavirus it is too early to make a final decision.
