N.B reports 25 in hospital for COVID, BA.4 subvariant ‘concerning,’ says epidemiologist – CBC

Omicron subvariant first detected in New Brunswick in early May

May 31, 2022

Hospitalizations and deaths attributed to COVID-19 continue to go down in New Brunswick, but an expert says a newer Omicron subvariant is concerning.

New Brunswick Public Health released its weekly COVID update on Tuesday, showing three people died between May 22 and 28, down from the five people who died from the disease in the week prior.

Hospitalizations for COVID across the province also dropped from 27 to 25, along the number of positive PCR tests, from 768 to 554.

While the dominant strain of COVID-19 in New Brunswick is the BA.2 Omicron subvariant, the BA.4 subvariant has been on the rise since it was first detected in the province in early May.

With signs it’s able to bypass immunity acquired from previous COVID infection and vaccination, it could reinfect those who recently had the disease, putting continued strain on the health-care system, said Colin Furness, an infection control epidemiologist in Toronto.
