America's top scientist and corona epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that the delta virus found in India will be the biggest challenge for America. Referring to the highly infectious strain delta variant, Fauci said that it can spread more easily than the original Kovid-19 virus.
He said that this variant is a very effective version of this disease globally. This type can infect people very fast and easily.
Let us tell you that the delta virus was found in India during April and May and thousands of people died due to this. Due to this, there was a second wave of corona in India in which thousands of people died. Due to this, there was a shortage of beds in hospitals, space in cremation grounds, and the health system was badly damaged.
Let us tell you that where Alpha strain caused havoc in America and Britain, Delta in India. On the other hand, Beta in South Africa and Gamma strain in Brazil. The Delta strain has been found to be the most contagious among them all. So the danger still remains. Its new variant Delta Plus has also arrived.
Among the most active coronavirus strains in the world, the delta variant (B.1.617.2) is highly contagious. It first appeared in India. The WHO had also expressed more concern about Delta out of these four strains. It wreaked havoc in India in the second wave. Now, this is creating fear in Britain and America. It is 60% more contagious than the alpha strain previously spread in the US.
Why is Delta a dangerous strain?
According to Chinese medical scientists, the condition of Delta victims deteriorates rapidly. The infected become battered and their recovery is very slow. Meanwhile, when his condition worsens, untoward incidents happen to him.
According to Dr. Fauci, in the US at present, six percent of the total cases are infected with the delta strain. According to Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research at the University of Minnesota, it will overtake the alpha strain by being more infectious.
