Scientists have found differences with previous strains, including the ability to re-infect people weeks after contracting Covid-19. A prominent immunologist has now suggested that there may be a new presentation for this strain.

“An additional symptom of BA.5 I’ve seen this morning is night sweats,” Luke O’Neill, a professor at Trinity College Dublin, told Irish radio station Newstock. He added, “Isn’t it strange?”

According to the official, “the disease is a little different because the virus has changed” and “there’s some immunity to it – obviously with T cells and so on – and this combination of the immune system with the slightly different virus, can lead to a slightly different disease, with night sweats a hallmark.” “.

“But most importantly, if you are vaccinated and boosted, the infection will not develop into a serious disease and that is the message to continue to remind people,” he cautioned.
