SARS-CoV-2 variant BA.2.75.2 enhanced antibody escape

September 19, 2022

At the GVN, we constantly keep an ear to the ground on new viral threats. Last summer, we monitored the diffusion of SARS-CoV-2 variant BA.2.75. So far, that variant has not spread at rates that cause further concern. Recently, however subvariant, BA.2.75.2 has appeared, characterized by a broad antibody escape profile. While data on its fitness are still lacking, the GVN wants the virology community to be aware of this potentially problematic new variant.
