A NEW Covid variant has arrived in the UK and US – but experts have given little indication of its severity.

BA.2.75, nicknamed Centaurus, was first detected and is spreading rapidly in India.

It is a relative of Omicron, the original strains of which were shown to be more mild Covid illness (BA.1 and BA.2).

But it is feared that Centaurus is even more infectious than Omicron strains that have come before it.
