Israel's ministry of health said Wednesday it had recorded two cases of new Covid variant, but which officials said they were not unduly worried about. The strain, combining two sub-variants of the Omicron version of the Covid-19 virus-dubbed BA.1 and BA.2-was recorded during PCR tests on two passengers arriving at Israel's Ben Gurion airport.

"This variant is still unknown around the world," the ministry statement read.
