New variant of Corona found abroad B.1.1529 raised the government’s concern
Corona cases are decreasing in the country, but new variants of corona found abroad have once again raised the concern of the government. This is the reason that now the Health Ministry has instructed all the states and union territories to be alert.
In fact, a new variant B.1.1529 of Corona has been found in many countries, after which the Union Health Ministry has asked the states to be alert. Cases of this variant have been reported from Bostwana, South Africa and Hong Kong. In such a situation, it has been asked to pay attention to the testing of people coming from abroad. On the other hand, if any of these passengers is coming out positive, then his sample will be sent to the INSACOG Genome Sequencing Laboratory.
On the other hand, on Wednesday, the Union Health Ministry wrote a letter to many states regarding the decline in the rate of weekly COVID-19 test. These include states like Maharashtra, Kerala, Goa, Manipur and Punjab. It has been said in the letter that with the decreasing cases of corona, there has also been a decrease in the rate of weekly investigation. In such a situation, without adequate testing, the exact rate of spread of infection in a particular area cannot be measured.
Corona infection spreading in many countries
The letter said that many countries have seen an increase in the cases of corona virus infection and many developed countries are also seeing the fourth and fifth wave of COVID despite large scale vaccination, so to prevent the spread of infection. There is a need for constant monitoring. All containment measures should be implemented.
At the same time, a new study has revealed that the delta variant of COVID can also make fully vaccinated people a victim. The study revealed that to protect against the delta variant, along with a vaccine, a strategy to prevent and control the infection is also needed. This study was done in two hospitals in Delhi, in which it was found that the severity of infection caused by the virus can be prevented with the vaccine. However, there have been many cases of break through infection (infected after getting the vaccine) and at the same time there may be a risk of spreading the infection to other people as well.
America-Europe again became the epicenter of Corona, why the pattern of the virus remains a puzzle till now
