The Beijing epidemic prevention and control press conference reported that Beijing sequenced the whole genome of the samples of infected person 2 notified on March 8. The results showed that the virus belonged to the Omicron variant (BA. 2 evolutionary branch), which had low homology with the previous local and imported Omicron cases in Beijing, and was highly homologous with the Omicron cases notified by other provinces on March 4. Based on the results of epidemiological investigation and gene sequencing, it is preliminarily considered that the source of infection of infected person 2 is from other provinces.
