Acadiana is seeing roughly 300 new cases each day over the past two weeks. The highly contagious BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants are driving the uptick.
It’s a far cry from January, when about 1,500 new cases were reported per day at the peak of the omicron surge. It’s also not as high as the delta surge last September, when about 440 cases per day were reported.
