We’re so stunned by the corona epidemic. Anyway, it is better to be careful yet. Everyone should be healthy by following the rules of the corona. The Omicron variant that started in Africa is now confusing everyone.
This new type of variant can be detected by PCR testing. But let us now see if it has any effect on other tests. The World Health Organization says research is already underway. The PCR test used to diagnose other problems seems to identify this variant.
If this is the case then they are looking into whether it has any effect on other types of tests including rapid antigen detection tests. There seems to be a lot of risk posed by this variant that started in South Africa.
However, experts say that it will take a few days of study to fully learn about this new variant. If this is the case then maybe this Omicron variant is more dangerous than other variants. It seems to be contagious even to those who have taken more than two doses of the vaccine. It has been said that it is six times more dangerous than the Delta variant. So it is good that everyone is being careful.
If you look at the cases that came in South Africa. Scientists have identified this variant as ‘B.1.1.529’. Doctors say it is spreading rapidly in Gauteng province. 90% said that this variant was the reason for registering cases. It seems that this variant may have spread to eight other provinces as well.
Why do mutations or variants vary?
Variation or mutation of the virus occurs when changes occur in the virus genes. The corona virus seems to vary as well. Variants also vary due to geographical separation. Doctors say that changes in the virus can be noticed over time.
What is a delta variant?
When the corona epidemic began, the corona spread due to its SARS-CoV-2. We have also seen variants like Delta, Alpha, Beta, etc. coming after that. He said that by September 2021 Delta was the most dangerous and most likely to be infected.
Important things everyone needs to know:
The virus varies. That is why the corona epidemic should not be considered over yet. Adults and children who have been vaccinated should also wear masks, adhere to social distances, and take precautions against corona epidemic. Make sure you stay safe from international travel.
Can those who have been vaccinated be safe from the Delta variant?
Vaccinated but some infections are possible. Vaccines can protect against coronary heart disease. However, be aware that the epidemic can spread even if you have been vaccinated a few times. Note, however, that those who have been vaccinated are less likely to be at risk. But it is not good to act carelessly.
How many types of corona epidemic are there?
The virus has undergone many changes since it first appeared in China. We have also seen variants like Delta, Alpha, Beta, etc. coming after that.
What is the Variant of Concern?
The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classify viruses. Variant of Interest, Variant of Concern, Variant of Consequence. However the variant of concern means it is very dangerous.
Until then, the corona epidemic has receded in those who have been reduced. Infection can occur even after taking the vaccine. Alpha, beta, gamma, delta variants fall under the variant of concern.
Will the vaccine protect against newer variants?
Vaccinated people should also observe and follow changes in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Guidance. Care should be taken to wear a mask, adhere to social distance and wash hands thoroughly. Even those who have been vaccinated can become infected with the virus if they are not careful.
Are children more likely to have problems with the corona virus?
The corona is more prevalent in children due to the delta variant. Unusual infections have also become more common. Many children died as well. However, there is no evidence yet as to whether it affects children or adults. It is good that everyone is also careful.
Will there be more new Corona variants?
Yes, more and more different variants are coming as the corona virus infects. But these keep coming and going. Severity also increases if there is a change in infection.
It seems that very dangerous infections are coming in most European countries. The new variant, Omicron, has been linked to a number of corona infections
