AY.4.2 is one of 45 subspecies of the Delta strain that has been recognized worldwide. The spike protein in this subspecies has two specific mutations Y145H and A222V that affect human cells. Both mutations were previously found to be isolated in other subspecies of coronavirus strains, but none of them later received “probe variant” status in the state, suggesting that the virus was not highly contagious.
