The Omicron 5 subvariant appears to be under control in some areas, including France and New York State. However, risk factors remain, including poor use of masks and vaccination coverage considered unsatisfactory in the United States

The threat Cerberus, one of the subvariants of Omicron 5, at this moment it would seem not to materialize. This is suggested by some apparent “positive signs” indicated by experts in various parts of the world. An example is what is reported by the evolutionary biology professor at the University of Leuven (Belgium), Tom Wenseleers: France, he said, is facing the rise of the sub-variant, but the situation seems to be under control at the moment

Eric TopolAmerican scientist director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, California, commented on the French data and said it could be “a good luck preliminary of the fact that for the Christmas holidays we may not be faced with a major wave ”. And he adds that “the bivalent booster” aimed at BA.5 “induces protection” in terms of “cross-immunity against BQ.1.1” and another variant ‘attention’ by international experts, i.e. a ‘daughter’ of Centaurus, BA.2.75.2

The Sars-CoV-2 virus, Topol reflects, “has evolved considerably since the BA.5 summer variant became globally dominant.” Cerberus collected “6 mutations from BA.2, BA.5’s predecessor”, and gained “a clear growth advantage (100%). It became dominant first in France and is about to do the same in the United States”. But “as Wenseleers pointed out, BQ.1.1 is losing strength and ‘fell like a stone’. It was not expected”
