Saudi Arabia | Important information about the `XBB` mutant after a number of injuries were recorded inside the Kingdom

Weather of Arabia - Sinan Khalaf - After recording a number of infections with the new mutant of the Corona virus "XBB" in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Ministry of Health started an awareness campaign through its various platforms to raise awareness of this mutant, which is classified as a sub-mutator of Omicron.

 

The "XBB" mutant is distinguished by its rapid spread compared to the rest of the mutant, according to the Saudi Ministry of Health. The Saudi Ministry of Health called for "completing doses of the Covid 19 vaccine, and obtaining stimulatory doses", which provides protection from severe complications.

 

 

 

The Saudi Ministry of Health advised to “wear a mask”, especially when infected, stressing the importance of this for “the elderly and those who suffer from chronic or immune diseases”, and advised to maintain hand hygiene, to prevent the spread of the sub-mutant.

 

For his part, the Saudi Minister of Health, Fahd Al-Jalajil, confirmed the ministry's follow-up to "all developments of the Corona pandemic", in a tweet via his account on the "Twitter" website.

 

 

 

And about the “XBB” sub-mutator and its monitoring in Saudi Arabia, he said that “there have not been indications of virulence and severity so far,” noting the importance of “completing the Corona virus vaccines because they are effective against mutant.”

 

He called on the public to "follow the advice and instructions" of the Ministry of Health, and the Public Health Authority "Prevention", and to implement preventive measures, according to what he mentioned in the tweet.

 

And it confirmed in a statement, Monday, that the sub-mutants of "Omicron BA5 and BA2" are prevalent in more than 75% of the positive samples, according to the Saudi Press Agency "SPA".
