Japan Reports The First Case Of COVID-19 With Omicron XE

The National Institute of Diseases indicated this Tuesday, April 12, the case of a female infected by the Omicron XE variant, but this patient also presented signs of the presence of the original BA.1 and BA.2, so it follows that she has both viruses in her body.


In such a case, Japan reported its first case of COVID-19 combined with Omicron XE in a patient who was asymptomatic at the beginning of the illness, indicated the Ministry of Health of the Asian country.


The indicated patient already had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine made by Pfizer in her system, and it is assumed that this is why the woman did not present symptoms of the disease. However, upon landing from the flight from the United States, the test to enter Japan returned a positive result.


This patient complied with the quarantine and regulatory procedures of the country in health matters. However, the National Institute of Diseases indicated that this variant of COVID-19 is more dangerous than the rest of the existing variants but that its severity is still a matter of study, given that it has reached a point in history where the presence of a vaccine in an individual's system can make a difference.


To date, Japan has recorded an average of more than 337,000 new COVID cases in previous weeks, a slight increase compared to the previous weeks. However, this nation has registered more than seven million infections and 28,697 deaths linked to COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
