Many people infected with SARS-CoV-2 Omicron did not realize it

The continued evolution of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has resulted in the emergence of several variants, such as Alpha, Beta, Delta, Iota, and Omicron variants. Currently, SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variants are primarily circulating in most countries around the world.

Double COVID-19 mRNA vaccination shown to increase SARS-CoV-2 variant recognition

In a recent study published on bioRxiv* preprint server, researchers assessed the impact of BNT162b2 messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) double vaccination in the recognition of variants of concern (VoC) of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) . Study: Double-dose mRNA vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 incrementally increases recognition of variants of concern by Spike RBD-specific memory …
