New threat: This 'super infectious' variant of corona raises concern, 32 mutations make it more dangerous than delta
Cases of corona infection are seen increasing once again in all the countries of the world. Especially in Europe, Corona once again seems to be causing serious problems for the people. Meanwhile, scientists have warned people about another new variant of the corona. According to reports, this new variant B.18.104.22.1689 of Corona can be quite contagious. So far 10 cases of this variant have been confirmed in three countries, which scientists say can cause serious complications in its nature. The study shows that not one or two 32 mutations have been observed in this variant of the corona, which makes it quite contagious.
This new variant of Corona has increased the concern of scientists. Scientists say that based on the studies so far, it can be said that this new variant of the corona may be the most dangerous, which will require fresh preparations for prevention. Let us know in detail about this new variant B.22.214.171.1249 of Corona in the next slides.
32 mutations have been observed in the variant
According to media reports, this new variant of Corona was first identified in Botswana, South Africa. According to scientists, about 32 mutations seen in this new variant of corona make it highly contagious. The higher the number of mutations, the greater the chance of the virus evading immunity. Virologist Dr. Tom Peacock from Imperial College London, while sharing the genome, wrote that "an incredibly high amount of spike mutations have been observed in the virus which suggests that this may be of real concern.
Can easily dodge antibodies
According to reports, the K417N and E484A mutations seen in this new variant of Corona are similar to the 'beta' variant found in South Africa itself. These mutations have the ability to easily dodge the antibodies made from the vaccine. In addition, the N440K mutation similar to the delta variant in B.126.96.36.1999 and the S477N mutation similar to the New York variant has been observed, which makes it capable of evading antibodies. The P681H and N679K mutations have also been detected in this variant of the corona, which has been observed for the first time and may make it more jab resistant.
What do experts say?
This new variant of Corona has increased the concern of scientists. Professor François Balloux, director of the UCL Genetics Institute, says that such a large number of mutations in the variant apparently accumulated in "single bursts", suggesting that it may develop during chronic infection in individuals with weakened immunity. How contagious it is, it is not clear about this at the moment, although it is certain that it can be much more dangerous than all the variants so far. This should be closely monitored and analyzed.
can be dangerous than delta
The World Health Organization (WHO) has listed this new variant of the corona as "Variant Under Monitoring". François Balloux, Professor of Genetics at University College London, says, "Based on all the data that has been received about this variant, it can be said that it may be more capable of dodging antibodies than the most dangerous delta ever." could. Meaning it can create big problems for those people who have been vaccinated.
