'Delta' type of coronavirus responsible for second wave of pandemic, contagious 50 percent more than 1,000

The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the deadly coronavirus in the country is attributed to the delta variant which is more contagious than the alpha variant. Scientists have studied the causes of the second wave of Kovid-19 and came to this conclusion. Let us report that according to the INSACOG and NCDC study, the B.1.617 variant and its B.1.617.2 variant were initially responsible for the higher incidence. It is 50 percent more contagious than the alpha variant (B.1.1.7).

More than 12,000 cases of delta variant

Variable delta is the main variant in India and has been reported to be a concern in the country. To date, more than 12 thousand cases have been found. According to the study, the risk of infection with this type is high despite taking a dose of the Corona vaccine. More than 12,200 cases of the Delta type of corona have been reported so far. Although the delta variant is mostly located in the capital city Delhi, it is present in almost all states of the country. As a result, infections have appeared in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Odisha and Telangana.

Risk persists even after vaccination: study

Despite the vaccination against corona, the risk of infection with the delta variant remains. As far as the risk after vaccination from the alpha variant coronavirus is minimal because no such case has been reported so far. It is clear from the second wave of the epidemic that Delta has outperformed all variables so far. In a total of 29,000 genome sequences, more than 1,000 cases of delta variant were found. According to data released by the Federal Ministry of Health, on Friday morning, the number of cases of coronavirus in the country continues to decrease. In the past 24 hours, 132,364 new cases were reported and 2,713 infected people died.
