There is continuing evidence that subforms of Omicron - BA.4 and BA.5 - are also infecting people who have been vaccinated. Swaminathan tweeted on Thursday, "We must be prepared for new waves of Covid-19. Each form of the virus will be more infectious and immune-penetrating. With more people getting infected, the number of sick and hospitalized patients will increase. All countries should have a plan to deal with the emerging situation on the basis of data.
