State health officials are also watching for any signs of the BA.2 subvariant of omicron, classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “high concern”. In spite of no cases having been detected to date, Flores Aldape reminded us that given the variant’s activity in other parts of the world, this is no time to lower our guard.
