Good news for India, the deadliest MU and C-1.2 variants of corona virus not yet found in the country
MU and C1.2, the most dangerous variants of corona virus in India, have not been seen yet. This information has been given by the Genome Sequencing Association 'INSAKOG'. The union says that so far two new forms of SARS-CoV-2, MU and C.1.2 have not been seen in the country. The Central Government's SARS Kovid-2 Genomics Consortia (INSACOG) said that the delta variant of Kovid-19 and its two sub-types remain the main variants of concern in the country.
Apart from this, in view of the danger of both the new variants of corona, which have become a matter of concern for many countries, INSACOG has called for more robust implementation of the existing recommendations on sequencing of positive samples of international travelers.
Variants of interest include MU variants
The World Health Organization (WHO) included B.1.621 (B.1.621.1) in the Variants of Interest on August 30 and named it 'MU'. WHO has also included C.1.2 as a new VOI.
INSACOG said that C.1.2 is a subtype of the C.1 variant described in South Africa but has not spread globally at the present time.
Delt Variants Made In India Cause Of Concern
The Sangh said in its bulletin on December 10, 'Neither MU nor C.1.2 has been seen in India so far. Existing recommendations on sequencing of positive samples of international travelers can be implemented more vigorously. Further monitoring and evaluation of the data appears to be sufficient at this time.' "Delta and delta sub-types continue to be a concern in India," the union said.
Due to the delta variant of Corona, the infection is spreading rapidly in many other countries as well. This also led to the deadly second wave of corona in India. Insacog said that there are mutations in MU that indicate the ability to evade potential immunity.
That's why this variant is very dangerous
This is a very dangerous and more infectious variant, which has been considered capable of surviving the effect of the vaccine in the patient's body. These variants mutate over time and undergo changes. This is the reason why it helps to spread easily, avoid the effects of the vaccine and stay active. According to the WHO bulletin, the global presence of the MU variant is declining and its presence is currently below 0.1 percent.
