The PA.2.75 variant of the coronavirus, also known as centaurus, also appeared in the Netherlands. It was established by the RIVM after research on test subjects.

This variant was detected in a sample from the northeastern Gelderland region. It was taken on June 26.

Little is known about PA.2.75. This variant has already been established in India on a slightly larger scale. It has also been found in Australia, Japan, Canada, USA, Germany and UK.

Mutations can cause the BA.2.75 variant to evade the immune system against the virus (through infection or vaccination) more easily than other types of omikron. There are many more studies going on in this regard. For now, the centaurs don’t seem sick.
