According to the World Health Organization, the Indian variant of Kovid is more contagious, and vaccines are less effective because they are more resistant to antibodies. On Saturday, May 8, observations announced that countries should be extremely vigilant in detecting these cases.
A new difficulty Covid Experts are on high alert for this …WHO, By its chief scientist, Soumya Swaminathan, Saturday, May 8, States warned Variant This is “if”, B.1.617, Indicates the vulnerability of the virus “There are transmission-enhancing mutations that can cause antibodies developed through immunization or natural contamination.“.
A Variant What ‘WHO As our colleagues have explained, we can classify the most dangerous strains of the virus Western France, “Its biggest epidemic“, But also because of its capacity”Overcome immunizations and patient mortality“In the opinion of the scientist, to make it clear that immunization alone is not enough in India.”Because the epidemic is affecting thousands of people, and it is growing at an alarming rate.“.”It can take months or years for rates to reach 70 to 80%“Immunization continues in India Soumya Swaminathan.
The Indian variant alone cannot be blamed for an explosion of pollution cases in the country, it seems to exist, Chief ScientistWHO, “Let your guard go down immediately“, Well approved before controlling the epidemic in its area”Large crowds“She keeps:”These early signs were lost until the transmissions reached where the take-off was vertical.“.
To control the epidemic, there is only one solution: to establish already proven health measures such as detention or curfew, which India now rejects. “The more repetitive, contagious and contagious the virus, the greater the risk of mutations and adaptations.“Increases, be careful Soumya Swaminathan. To be continued: “Varieties that collect too many mutations will gradually become resistant to our current vaccines“She concludes:”This will be a problem all over the world“.
As a reminder, there were more than 4,000 deaths from India on Saturday, May 8th Covid And 400,000 new contaminants in 24 hours.
