COVID-19 Cases in Ireland
Since February 2023, XBB (and other recombinant) SARS-CoV-2 variants have dominated circulating SARS-CoV-2 variants worldwide. Since mid-June 2023 a new variant EG.5 which is a descendant of one of these XBB lineages (XBB.1.9.2) and related lineages with the F456L mutation in the spike protein have been increasing in predominance globally and in Ireland. These ‘XBB.1.5-like + F456L’ lineages accounted for 48.7% of SARS-CoV-2 sequences in Ireland in the latest five weeks of data (weeks 32 to 36 2023).
