Corona Crisis: Delta is still a big problem amid rising cases of Omicron, experts are worried about this
In many countries of the world including India, cases of infection with the Omicron variant of corona are increasing rapidly. The rapidly increasing cases of infection in India have increased the fears of a third wave in the country. According to the data released by the Ministry of Health on Friday, one lakh 17 thousand new cases of corona have been reported in the last 24 hours, which is the highest in the last seven months. At the same time, the number of people infected with the new variant of Corona in the country, Omicron, has also crossed 3000. According to health experts, the Omicron variant is by far the most infectious variant, although, in terms of severity, the delta variant is still a cause of serious concern.
According to health experts, even though cases of the Omicron variant are increasing in the country, Delta still remains a cause of great trouble. Due to the delta, people are still seeing serious symptoms and complications, so everyone should continue to take preventive measures against corona.
Delta continues to wreak havoc around the world
According to media reports, there is no doubt that the infectivity rate of the Omicron variant is higher than that of Delta, although Delta continues to cause major problems in many countries. In the US, among the increasing cases of Omicron, cases of hospitalization of infected with Delta are still being seen very high. According to a New York Times report, more than 55,000 Covid-19 patients are currently hospitalized in the country, most of them infected with Delta.
What is the concern of experts?
In a conversation with Senior Dr. Vivek Sahay, Intensive Care says, "The country is still witnessing cases of delta variant, it is definitely a challenging situation to come up with delta cases with Omicron. We don't know which variant will catch us, so at the moment the only way out is to protect. There have also been cases of co-infection of Omicron and Delta in several reports. It can cause serious complications in people. In the midst of Omicron's transition, we must not forget to ignore Delta's threat.
Co-infection of Omicron and Delta
Media reports mention cases of Delmicron among people in some countries. The Delmicron is not a new variant. Delmicron refers to the simultaneous infection of an Omicron and a delta variant in a person. Cases of combining Omicron and delta variants have been reported in patients in several countries, including the United States. Scientists say that since both these variants of corona are very contagious and lethal, simultaneous infection with them can cause big problems.
It is important for all to keep defending
Health experts say that the ongoing infection in the country due to Delta and Omicron has increased the fears of a third wave. Doctor Vivek Sahai says, Delta variant also has a major role in the surge in corona cases in the country. Omicron is certainly responsible, but cases of the delta variant still remain a cause for concern. To avoid this serious problem, there is a need for all people to follow the covid protocol continuously.
