Experts say there’s no need to panic about the Covid new variant XE, but it’s important to keep an eye on it. According to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) report, the new mutant known as XE may be more transmissible than any COVID-19 strain previously reported.

What Exactly Is The Covid New Variant XE?

Just when the world thought it was time to move on from Covid, the deadly virus may have something new in store for humans. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), a Covid mutation called XE has been discovered in the United Kingdom, and the global health organization believes it may be more transmissible than any other Covid strain so far. 

Covid new variant XE is a genetically mutated combination of 2 previous Omicron variants, BA.1 and BA.2. According to the study, this variant is ten times more transmissible than the BA.2 subvariant or Cloaking Omicron, which has been subtitled the “variant of concern” due to the high transmissibility rate. It is currently the virus’s most prevalent strain, accounting for 86% of all COVID-19 cases in recent years.
