The new type of corona will be more dangerous.
Mumbai: Corona virus is becoming more dangerous due to frequent mutations. Two new strains of corona have wreaked havoc in India. The first wave of corona did not cause as much damage. More damage is happening in the second wave. According to the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), corona has reached the UK and double mutant virus in 27 states and territories as of May 4.
Chief Scientific Adviser to the Government of India Dr. K Vijay Raghavan has blamed this mutant for the second wave of corona after October. During the period January to September last year, two types of corona virus were detected per month worldwide. These variants were also similar to the old corona virus and posed no risk of infection. But at the end of September, three variants were found, which caused concern all over the world. Strain from Brazil, South Africa and Britain made the second wave of corona more deadly.
While the Indian government has not blamed India’s double mutant virus for the second wave, World Health Organization chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan blames it.
The second wave of corona in India is slowly reaching its peak. The third wave of corona is thought to be more deadly than other forms. Dr. K. Vijayaraghavan has clearly shown this danger. There are also fears that existing vaccines could provide protection against the new type of corona.
Corona variants are not difficult to identify, said an ICMR scientist. So far, more than 13 lakh species have been identified. But it is not possible to say which type will be more contagious in the future. The British and South African varieties became highly contagious in December. Similarly, the double mutant virus found in India at the end of November caused the second wave that started in March.
