These new variants of corona spreading all over the world including India, can they pose a risk?

Coronavirus New Variant: The cases of Coronavirus are now seen going down in the world including India. According to the latest data, the number of active cases of corona virus in India is close to 26 thousand, which is 0.06 percent of the total positive cases in the country. At the same time, India’s positivity rate is currently 1.86 percent. However, now the new variants of Corona remain a matter of concern. Let us now give you important information related to these variants.

Now Omicron sub-variants like BF.7 and XBB are seen spreading fast in many countries. According to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) report, Omicron’s BA.5 sub-variant continues to be dominant worldwide, accounting for 76.2 percent of cases alone. Coming to India, the BA.4 and BA.5 sub-variants never became major variants here. According to the latest situation, BA.2.75 remains the cause of most of the infections.

Scientists eye new variants

Especially in America, scientists are constantly monitoring BQ.1, BQ.1.1, and BF.7, because their cases are increasing rapidly. According to data from the Center for Disease Control-USA, BQ.1 and BQ.1.1 each accounted for 5.7 percent of the total cases, while BF.7 accounted for 5.3 percent.

The BQ.X–variants and BF.7 are under scrutiny in the United Kingdom, as they gain ground on the flagship BA.5. According to the UK Health Protection Agency, BF.7 contributed 7.26 per cent to COVID-19 cases and saw an increase of 17.95 per cent compared to BA.5.

XBB Variants in India and Singapore

On the other hand, due to the recombinant variant XBB in Singapore, there has been a big jump in the cases of Kovid. It is believed to be responsible for 54 percent of the cases. According to the scientists, XBB is a combination of two Omicron sub-lineages BJ.1 and BA.2.75. However, XBB is spreading in India as well.

A scientist on Sars-CoV-2 said, “BA.2.75 was the dominant variant in India, accounting for about 98 per cent of cases till last week. However, XBB is on the rise, causing 20 to 30 in some states like Maharashtra.” percent infection is happening.” The scientist also said that three big laboratories in Maharashtra, Gujarat and West Bengal are testing more samples than other parts of the country and hence new variants are being identified there.

How dangerous are the new variants of Corona?

Infection is spreading due to these variants of corona, but there is no need to take most of the infected persons to the hospital till now. CDC figures show that in the week ending October 12, the number of cases reported in the US was 11.9 percent lower than the previous week. There was a decline of 4.4 percent in hospitalizations and 8.5 percent in deaths.

The United Kingdom, on the other hand, has seen an increase in hospitalizations and deaths in October. Singapore has also registered an increase in the number of hospitalizations, but the number of serious cases is still low. On the situation in India, the scientist said, “Although XBB appears to be more infective, there has been no increase in hospitalizations or deaths. The new variants have no clinical significance yet.”

Dr. Sudhanshu Vrati, Director, Regional Center of Biotechnology, Haryana said, “Emerging variants are also more spread among each other and are better able to avoid immunity. A large part of the population now has immunity either through vaccination or infection. Therefore, the virus needs to adapt to survive. However, it is not leading to severe cases and hospitalization. In most of the COVID-19 cases people have a sore throat, cough and fever. And they are recovering in three days.”

Can there be a huge jump in winter?

Dr. Vrati said that this can happen due to the gathering of people in crowded places during the festive season. He said, “The cases are likely to increase, but it will not be because of any variant. It will be because people are coming together during festivals and are hardly wearing masks now.”

When asked whether the disease started following a seasonal pattern, Dr Vrati said, “As of now there is no clinical evidence to suggest that COVID-19 has a seasonal pattern. It was thought That the number may increase during the rainy season or decrease in the summer months, but it has not happened.”
