Detection of a new, more infectious mutation Corona virus, The Delta Plus variant, Of which 40 cases have already been identified, of which concern is beginning to arise India, Which has crossed 30 million epidemics since the start of Wednesday International spread.
According to experts, the announcement comes amid warnings about the need to prepare for the inevitable third wave of COVID-19, although there is no data yet to determine if this mutation is more dangerous than it currently is.
New Delta Plus variant
The detection of a new variant of the corona virus called Delta Plus in India and the identification of about 40 cases of them is worrying as there is a high transmission potential in India.
“The Delta Plus variant has been spotted from time to time in Maharashtra (west), Kerala (south) and Madhya Pradesh (center) and so far 40 cases have been detected,” Indian Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said on Twitter on Wednesday.
This is a mutation of the delta variant first identified in India (p.1.617.2), which is largely attributed to the dramatic increase in incidence in the Asian country, representing the hierarchical consortium of Indian SARS-CoV. 2 gene in one report (INSACOG).
The Government of India has classified Delta Plus as a “worry variant” due to its high transmission capacity.
States that detect their presence should take immediate action to isolate the source of the infection, increase the number of corona virus tests and strengthen the vaccine campaign, the administrator said in a statement today.
Virologist Jayaprakash Muliyil, chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of the National Institute of Epidemiology, told EFA that there was a lack of data to confirm that it was more dangerous than other types.
“As the delta has changed (…) we have described it as a worrying variant, but we have not noticed anything harmful at the moment. A mutation may indicate a higher infection or mortality rate, but no information is available,” said Plus Mull in Delta.
The virologist stressed that in a country like India it is difficult to estimate the extent of these variants of the corona virus, although the ability to sequence the genome of corona virus tests is low, according to Mulil, which is increasingly being produced.
Third million infections
According to the latest data from the Indian Ministry of Health, concern over the new Delta Plus variant has pushed the Asian nation to a ban of 30 million epidemics since the outbreak on Wednesday.
In the last 24 hours, there have been 50,848 new COVID-19 infections and 1,358 deaths, raising the total death toll to 390,660.
According to Johns Hopkins University, India is the second country in the world to be completely infected with the corona virus, behind the United States with 33.5 million infections.
However, these figures represent a significant decrease compared to the peak recorded in mid-May, with more than 400,000 infections per day, placing a heavy burden on its health system, leaving dramatic images of saturated hospitals and cremations.
The third wave of infection
Despite the clear decline in the corona virus curve in the country, in recent days, many waves highlight the need for preparation for the third wave that experts say is inevitable.
“It is clear that there is a third wave on the way, and I will say that the virus is constantly evolving and changing shape so that new waves can occur after the third wave,” said Rahul Gandhi, leader of the opposition Congress party. Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.
Protesters have called the Indian Prime Minister, Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi’s corona virus management policy a “disaster”.
After the first wave of the virus, the Indian government was driven by a sense of success as cases were reduced between November and February, Gandhi said.
In recent weeks, medical officials and the judiciary have also urged the executive to take action to prevent beds and oxygen deprivation in the wake of the third wave.
5.4 million dose administrator
India on Wednesday delivered 5.4 million vaccines within the framework of a campaign that officials consider to be the best defense against the corona virus.
That number has dropped from the record of 9 million doses administered in a single day last Monday, although this is an improvement over the number in recent weeks.
Although the vaccine shortage has significantly delayed this ambitious plan, the Asian country had set a target of managing a total of 600 million doses by August.
