New York, just like the rest of the US, is currently experiencing the spread of new COVID-19 variants. The BA.2.86 variant is making its presence felt, as it's actively spreading across the country. However, the variant nicknamed Eris or EG.5 is now the dominant Covid variant in the United States.
In New York, the EG.5 variant is causing a surge in hospital admissions. The variant is now linked to an increasing number of COVID-19-related hospitalizations across the state.
Booster Against XBB Variant
Experts believe that the updated Covid-19 booster targeted against the XBB variant would closely match the variants currently in circulation.
New Vaccine Developments
As the Eris variant rises, new COVID vaccines are in development and one is expected to be available next month.
New York and the US at large are adapting to the presence of new COVID-19 variants. With EG.5 being the dominant strain, it's vital to stay updated on vaccine developments and maintain preventive measures.
