Omicron variants are increasing in number almost weekly. We cover which of these variants are most prevalent in different countries around the world. This includes BQ.1, BQ.1.1, XBB, XBB.1, and more! We talk about global numbers and then dive into variants in the United States, United Kingdom, France, India, and Singapore.

The lineages and mutations of these variants are briefly covered as a way to understand which variants may be more closely related. Lastly, we hone in on Singapore who had a large surge of XBB.1 and XBB a few months ago. Since XBB and XBB.1 numbers are starting to increase in North America and Europe, we talk about hospitalizations and case counts in Singapore during their XBB and XBB.1 surge to gauge whether we should be expecting any worsening disease.
