Posted: Wednesday, August 9, 2023. 4:03 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified the EG.5 COVID-19 strain as a “variant of interest.”

Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted that the fast-spreading variant is the most prevalent in the United States with an estimated more than 17% of cases.

In addition, this variant has been detected in China, South Korea, Japan and Canada, among other countries.

In the United States, cases and emergency room visits have seen an increase.

However, medical experts have said that EG.5 does not seem to cause more severe illness than previous strains of the coronavirus.
