Numbers that are not optimistic, especially in terms of the speed of spread and the possibility of recovery

Corona virus continues to mutate with more severe symptoms day after day, and “Lampa” is the latest mutation of the emerging corona virus; Where the World Health Organization warned of it; as more ferocious than the previous mutants; It accounted for 70% of coronavirus infections in Chile and Argentina in the Latin American continent in recent weeks.

Lambda was first documented in Peru last December, and the mutated has now become the “dominant strain” in that country that lost 195,000 people who died of Covid-19, or 0.6% of the total population, according to figures from the American “Johns Hopkins University”. ; This is almost 3 times the death rate per capita in the epidemic in the United States.

According to “Sky News Arabia”; Reports have attributed the cause of the high mortality in Peru to factors unrelated to the Lambda, such as the low rate of vaccination against coronavirus in the country; As the percentage reached only 11% of the citizens, in addition to the companies’ insistence on the presence of employees in their workplaces, and the large density in markets, public places and means of transportation.

Despite the rapid spread of “lambda” in the countries of South America, and the emergence of the mutant in America as well; The experts called not to “exaggerate” the concern of him.

Speaking to the New York Times, the microbiologist who documented the emergence of Lambda, Pablo Tsukayama, said: “The information gap fuels concerns about this mutant, and Latin America’s limited ability to monitor, investigate and research it raises concerns that may be exaggerated.” .

“I don’t think lambda is worse than the previously discovered mutant,” Tsukayama added, according to CNET, a science and technology news site.

Researchers also mentioned in a report published by the newspaper “Times” that preliminary studies have not yet been reviewed, showing that the antibodies generated by the Pfizer, Moderna and Coronavac vaccines, developed by the Chinese company Sinovac, were less powerful against “Lampda” compared to the original strain; However, it still neutralizes the virus, and its efficacy against the new mutant is expected to increase.

Director of the WHO Regional Office, Carissa Etienne, said that the evidence available so far on “Lampda” indicates its high risk, especially in terms of its rapid transmission and ability to resist immunity arising from vaccines and recover from the epidemic.

The UN official added: “We still do not have sufficient data to determine the extent of the seriousness of this mutation and its final specifications, but the scientific indicators gathered so far by experts do not give rise to optimism.”

The World Health Organization announced this mutant and named it “Lampa” on June 14, and considered it an interesting mutant.

Among the very few studies conducted on the lambda mutation and its ability to resist the Chinese Coronavac vaccine, it was found that it has the ability to resist it up to 64% of cases, according to the Chilean virologist Ricardo Soto.

A study conducted by experts from New York University showed that this mutation is resistant to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines by up to 22% in some cases.

Corona virus continues to mutate with more severe symptoms day by day, and “Lampa” is the latest mutation of the emerging corona virus; Where the World Health Organization warned of it; as more ferocious than the previous mutants; Where it accounted for 70% of infections with the Corona virus in both Chile and Argentina in the Latin American continent in recent weeks.

Lambda was first documented in Peru last December, and the mutated has now become the “dominant strain” in that country that lost 195,000 people who died of Covid-19, or 0.6% of the total population, according to figures from the American “Johns Hopkins University”. ; This is almost 3 times the death rate per capita in the epidemic in the United States.
