Thank you for reading this blame … you know the Corona mutant that became infected again and we assure you that we always seek your satisfaction, and now with the details
And according to the World Health Organization, this mutant may be more contagious than most previous versions of the virus.
The international organization also clarified in a new report two days ago that it was not yet clear to what extent the mutant, known as B.1.617, contributed to the devastating mutation that swept India in recent weeks.
Referred to as “B.1.617” is the fourth variable of concern. Other species include B.1.1.7; B.1.351, which swept through South Africa, and P.1 that ravaged Brazil.
B.1.617 first appeared in October 2020. It had a number of mutations, some of which proved to be of concern in the other variants.
As for the frightening issue, it is that a number of preliminary studies about mutations indicated that some of them may give the coronavirus a more tight grip on cells, which increases the chances of developing a strong infection, according to the “New York Times” newspaper.
Higher prevalence rate
In addition, other mutations can make it difficult for antibodies to fight them
Studies of the antibodies produced by vaccinated people have shown that they work less successfully against the B.1.617 mutation.
However, experts expect that most vaccines will still be effective against the mutants in general.
According to WHO researchers, B.1.617 is spreading more rapidly than other variants in India, and makes up more than 28% of samples in positive tests.
Statistics show that B.1.617 has a higher prevalence rate than other variants traded in India, with the possible exception of B.1.1.7.
While Gagandeep Kang, a prominent Indian virologist, is of the opinion that there is not enough data to conclude whether any of the two variables contribute to the second most deadly wave in India.
“There is some conflicting data regarding the B.1.1.7 variable, which in some studies appears to indicate that it causes more severe disease, and in others it does,” added Kang, executive director of the Institute of Transitional Health Science and Technology in India.
She also explained that based on reports from hospitals, B.1.617 appeared to cause more severe disease, but again, there was not enough data to draw conclusions. She said real-time genetic information will be essential to determine whether people with B.1.617 need more oxygen.
This comes as officials in India are trying to track the number of people who have been fully vaccinated and who have contracted the disease, and if there are an unusual number of these alleged hacks due to a variable such as B.1.617, this may indicate the variable’s ability to evade the vaccine!
