Most cases are caused by the Omicron EG.5 and KH.3 subvariants. These two subvariants even account for more than 70 percent of the cases found.
“Currently, there is no indication that the main subvariant is more transmissible or causes more severe disease than other circulating variants,” MOH said in his statement, citing Channel News Asia.
EG.5 itself is a derivative of the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2. This variant is the one that dominates the transmission of COVID-19.
