The Ministry of Health has announced the identification of the EG5 sub-variant, a derivation of the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus. This sub-variant has been identified in approximately 50 countries globally. While initial scientific data suggests no increased danger compared to other previously detected variants, the Ministry emphasizes its swift spread in specific regions worldwide, reported Al-Rai Daily.

The Ministry underscores the stability of health and clinical evaluation metrics within the country, reassuring the public about the situation. The appearance of such mutants is anticipated and not a cause for alarm, as viral mutations are inherent.

In response to any signs of respiratory infection, the Ministry advises individuals to avoid contact with others and encourages completion of seasonal vaccinations for infectious respiratory diseases. High-risk groups should particularly adhere to preventive measures, along with healthcare practitioners and staff in therapeutic health establishments.

The Ministry extends well wishes for good health and safety, reminding the public to remain vigilant and informed during these times.
