WHO:  SARS-CoV-2 variant EG.5* added as a Variant under Monitoring.

Japan, Fukuoka:  A quarter of all students, absent due to Covid in one school. Fukuoka Seiryo school will be closed from the 18th to the 21st to prevent the spread of infection, with 238 students, a quarter of all students, absent due to the new corona."

The World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday added EG.5 to the list of Omicron variants under monitoring (VUM), as most indicators for tracking COVID-19 activity declined, the group said in its latest weekly update.

EG.5 is a descendant of XBB.1.9.2, with one extra spike mutation. Global prevalence has been rising since the end of May. The WHO now has seven VUMs. The number of variants of interest remains at two, including XBB.1.5, which is steadily declining, and XBB.1.16, which is holding steady at 20.7% of sequences.

US among countries seeing EG.5 activity

The United States is one of the countries seeing rising EG.5 proportions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in its last estimates on Jul 8 that EG.5 made up 13% of samples. The WHO said so far there's no evidence that EG.5 is fueling any rises in cases or deaths or that infections involving the virus are more severe.

DJ-Japan story indicate a mild start with severe disease a few days later on in some cases...

DJ-With politics/media sticking to "pandemic-is-over-religion" it may be very hard to get good info in the short term...

Worries About the New Variant and Rising COVID Deaths in Italy


https://twitter.com/DrEricDing/status/1690066223441006592

🪄Smart summary:
This thread discusses the new EG5 variant of COVID-19, which may be more immune-evasive and infectious than past variants. It also looks at the increasing COVID-19 deaths in Italy, and the divergence between the UK and US in predicting the prevalence of the XBB16 variant. The thread concludes with the question of whether EG5 is "the next big one" or not.
-------

📍The thing that worries me about the new variant is whether it is incredibly immunity evasive against past infections/vaccines (especially the 80-85% who never got Omicron bivalent booster shot)— and how infectious & severe it will be? And why now this summer if it has been… https://t.co/R580iqHjJB

DJ, lots of countries seem to show increase of cases...however testing/sequencing still is a major problem (the EG.5 variant can go under lots of subvariant names).
