The infection situation is still manageable, but experts are closely monitoring developments and are focusing in particular on the spread of new variants. After the recent focus on the Omicron sub-variant BA.2.75, attention is now also being paid to BJ.1, which has already been detected in Europe. This is another subline of Omicron-BA.2, which originally appeared in India, with an additional 14 mutations in the spike protein.

As Austrian geneticist Ulrich Elling now announced on Twitter, it has now also arrived in Austria. He wrote on Twitter that. “Another worrying subline is spreading in India and has also arrived in the USA and Europe (Austria): BJ.1.” He added: “Numbers are still very low, but the newly acquired mutations are really a nasty combination at critical sites.”
