The KP. 2 stress of Covid- 19 may become strong in Thailand, according to a famous virologist. It will be more transmissible, and vaccines will be difficult to keep up with its mutations, but its signs wo n’t be more severe than those of earlier strains of the virus.

The KP.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P 2 burden was resembling and spreading and replacing JN. 1 as the powerful pressure in the country. JN. 1 has been common in the country since late last month, he wrote.

KP. According to Prof. Yong, 2 does not spread more quickly but does not cause more serious disease.

Since the XBB has already been used to develop vaccinations. 1.5 pressure, the World Health Organization&nbsp, recommended novel vaccines to been developed to cope with JN. 1. Before that happened, the mutant into KP. 2 occurred, the pathologist wrote.

vaccinations for the XBB are applicable. 1. 5 strains were significantly less effective with JN. 1 and KP. 2, he wrote.

It is challenging to create vaccinations that match a current nemesis, according to Prof. Yong.
