A new subvariant of omicron, known as BA.2, has experts in the U.S. concerned that another surge in coronavirus infections may occur. 

The new strain is already causing a surge in hospitalizations and deaths in about a dozen countries worldwide. 

BA.2 is believed to be more transmissible than the original strain of omicron. 

According to Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, a recent study showed that unvaccinated persons have been hospitalized at a rate 23 times higher than boosted, vaccinated persons. 

Vaccination and boosters are clearly the key to preventing infection. Concerns that vaccinations are connected with problems with fertility, robotic control of people by the state, and autism have been disproven many times. What has been proven is that people who are vaccinated and boosted are much more likely to avoid getting COVID-19 – and if they do, they are much less likely to  become seriously ill and die.
