Experts are warning of the spread of a new strain of Omicron variant virus in the United States and potential health effects after infection, as major states in the country rushed to shed off Covid-19 restrictions amid a continuous decline in cases and hospitalization.

An Omicron sub-variant, known as BA.2, which appears to spread 30% more easily, has made up 3.9% of all infections, up from 1.6% in the week ending January 29, fuelling worries the country may not return to normal as planned.

Infectious disease experts warned the same could happen in the United States, raising fears that the spread “may be on track to rapidly accelerate in the near future,” the report published.

Meanwhile, the problem of cardiovascular disease of all types increased substantially in the year following Covid-19 infection, according to a research published this month in Nature Medicine which looked into the health records of more than 153000 US veterans.

Medical Experts estimated there might be millions of new-onset cardiac cases related to the virus, plus a worsening of the disease for many already affected.

We are expecting a tidal wave of cardiovascular events in the years ahead from direct and indirect causes of Covid-19, This has been reported by The Washington Post, citing Donald M. Lloyd-Jones, president of the American Heart Association.

While New York State began to lift Covid-19 Coronavirus restrictions, not all residents favour the decision, The New York Times recently reported it.
