Three new COVID-19 variants have hit the U.S

The Coronavirus has three new variants: BA.4.6, BF.7, and BA.2.75, and they are spreading fast throughout the country.

BA.4.6, BF.7 and BA.2.75, now make up one in five new infections across the country.

CBS News reports, that while the nation isn’t seeing many COVID-19 cases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is suggesting that we don’t take the new stains lightly.

Dr. Fauci, chief medical adviser for President Joe Biden said with the combination of the evolution of variants, as well as the seasonal aspects, that as we get into this coming late fall and winter, it is likely that we will see another variant emerge.

Right now, there are more than 150 cases of BA.2.75, which reportedly has the most “extreme antibody escape than any variant” that’s existed so far.

A spokesperson for the FDA said it is looking into the new strains.
