3 variants of Corona were found to be the most contagious. Which led to a large increase in the number of patients in India.
New Delhi: The second wave of corona virus in India has raised concerns among governments, experts and the public. The second wave began in February 2021 when there was a sudden increase in the incidence of corona infections in the country. After that, his speed surprised not only the country but also other countries. The wave was so strong that it was unpredictable
In the second wave, the number of corona patients reached more than 4 lakh per day. But now the decline in these cases has brought relief. Cases are now dwindling after the country’s second wave reached a high level. Now, experts say, cases are slowly declining.
Three types of corona virus have caused the most damage in India. These include B117, B1618 and B1167. Of these, B1167 is considered the most dangerous by the World Health Organization. The organization says the infection spreads very quickly through this form. Perhaps this is why experts say that the second wave of corona in India has infected about 50 per cent of the country’s population. According to a report in the science journal Nature, new forms of the corona virus are emerging that are more contagious than ever. They make things more worrying.
B117 was first found in Britain, but its effect was more pronounced in India. Its spread was also seen more rapidly in India. Most of the cases were reported in Punjab, including the capital Delhi. Similarly, the first case of B1618 came to light in West Bengal. This is where the change in the form of the virus started. After that it also spread very fast.
In all of this B1167 is lethal. Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated in Maharashtra. Apart from this, many other states have also suffered. Currently, such cases have been reported in many states of the country. It mostly affects the patient’s lungs.
According to Cambridge University, the effects of these changes in the virus were so widespread that they now have far-reaching effects. The pace of his transition was also much faster than before. Experts believe that the main reason for this may also be that B1617 has more compatibility than other variants. Nick Loman, a microbial genomologist at the University of Birmingham in the UK, says: Genome sequencing needs to be accelerated to find out. ‘
