The renewed surge in cases, mostly of the BA.4/5 Omicron variants, provides a further challenge for authorities grappling with the economic fallout of earlier waves of the pandemic while trying to avoid restrictions. 



In the US, the surge is driven by the BA.5 variant, which accounts for 65% of cases with its cousin BA.4 contributing another 16%.
