Surge of new COVID-19 cases in Canada due to EG.5 sub-variant

Global News on Youtube has the story.

A rapidly rising Omicron subvariant called EG.5 has been circulating in Canada and other countries, raising concerns of a new wave of COVID-19 infections. 

Experts say EG.5 presents similarities to other COVID-19 variants and sub-variants and is able to sneak past immune defences. Symptoms include fever, cough, fatigue, muscle aches and headaches. 

The latest advice from public health officials remains to get vaccinated, and take other precautions such as masking, regular hand washing etc.
