The World Health Organization says it is not seeing a lot of cases of people getting reinfected with the new mutation of the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

The WHO’s Dr. Maria van Kerkhove says there are ongoing studies to determine if patients, who have been infected with the BA.1 sub-lineage, do in fact get reinfected with the BA.2 sub-lineage.

Van Kerkhove says preliminary results do not show an increased risk of getting reinfected.
