In a recent conversation with a news agency, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, former Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization (WHO), reassured the public that there is no immediate cause for panic regarding the current situation. She emphasized that the identified variant, JN.1, is categorized as a variant of interest and not a variant of concern. Dr. Swaminathan urged people to exercise caution and adopt proper precautionary measures, stating, “We need to be cautious, but we don’t need to worry because we don’t have any data to suggest that this variant JN.1 is more severe or it’s going to cause more pneumonia, more death,” as reported by ANI.

Recently, the WHO officially designated JN.1 as a variant of interest, distinguishing it from its parent lineage, BA.2.86. Despite this classification, the UN health body emphasized that the overall risk associated with the sub-variant remains low based on current evidence. Additionally, the WHO reported a 52% increase in new COVID cases over the past four weeks.
