A new coronavirus variant, KP.3 is reportedly rising in dominance across America and experts have warned about a “summer wave” of covid-19 cases.


Reports say the new class of covid19 subvariants which has been nicknamed ‘FLiRT’ are rapidly spreading across the United States of America.


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says in May 2024, one of these new variants, named KP.2, took over as the most dominant strain of SARS-CoV-2 in America.


However, the Centers for Disease Control said since the beginning of June, a new FLiRT variant, named KP.3, has taken the lead and now represents 25 percent of COVID-19 cases in the U.S.


KP.2 still follows as a close second, representing 22.5 percent of cases, it says.
