Singapore is seeing a new Covid-19 wave, with rising cases of infection in the last two weeks. The KP.1 and KP.2 strain of the COVID-19 virus currently account for more than two-thirds of cases in Singapore.

The two strains belong to a group of COVID-19 variants scientists have dubbed “FLiRT”, after the technical names of their mutations. They are all descendants of the JN.1 variant, which spread rapidly around the world several months back.

Earlier this month, the World Health Organization classified KP.2 as a Variant Under Monitoring. It is also the dominant strain in the United States and has been detected in countries like China, Thailand, India, Australia and the United Kingdom.
