However, right now experts are saying that the possibility of spreading it on a large scale is low, but it is being investigated. If more cases are reported, then this variant can be included in the list of variants of interest by the World Health Organization (WHO). If despite this, the cases continue to increase rapidly, then it will be kept in the list of variants of concern.

The AY 4.2 is actually a proposed name for a sub-type of the Delta variant. Its spike protein has two mutations Y145H and A222V. UK experts identified AY.4.2 in July 2021. By one estimate, this new sub-type accounts for 8-9 per cent of new UK cases.
