The new strain found in the research of National Institute of Virology, Pune, its name B.18.104.22.168; Covaxin effective on this.
Scary news has come amidst the situation under control of Corona in India. Pune's National Institute of Virology (NIV) has detected a new variant in genome sequencing of coronaviruses. According to the report of Times of India, this variant has been found in people who came to India from Britain and Brazil. The institute has named it as B.22.214.171.124. It is as serious as the Delta variant found in India. People infected with this can show severe symptoms of corona. However, it is a matter of relief that the indigenous corona vaccine Covaxin is effective on this.
After studying the variant, it was found that it can make people seriously ill. The need for screening has been told to see if the vaccine is effective against this variant. This NIV study has been published online in bioRxiv.
At the same time, in another study of the same institute, it was told that the indigenous corona vaccine covaccin is also effective against this variant and the antibodies produced by two doses of the vaccine can neutralize this variant.
Health experts say that when infected with the B.126.96.36.199 variant, the person starts losing weight. Due to the rapid spread of its infection, the patient's lungs become damaged. This variant can cause lesions and severe damage to the lungs. The study emphasizes the need for genome surveillance of Kovid. So that new variants of Corona can be detected as soon as possible.
