About 50 cases of Delta Plus, a new form of corona, have been found in the country. It has also been confirmed in many states including Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Which vaccine is more effective on this variant is yet to be known, but recent research has revealed that the vaccine is effective against the delta plus variant. Experts say that to prevent the third wave, it is necessary to protect against Delta Plus.
Dr. Tripti Gilada, Infectious Disease Specialist at Masina Hospital, Mumbai Learn how the Delta Plus variant was made and how dangerous it is…
How did the Delta Plus variant become from Coronavirus?
Dr. Tripti says, like other viruses, the corona also replicates, that is, it increases its number. During this mutation occurs in the virus. This is a kind of change in the virus. In this way, thousands of changes occur in the virus, but there are some changes that make it more dangerous and contagious.
In April-May this year, a new form of corona was said to be responsible for the increase in the number of deaths. After the change in this Delta variant, a new Delta Plus virus has been created. Experts believe, it is more dangerous and infectious than the previous virus.
Experts say that there have been more deaths in the second wave than the first wave of corona, due to the delta variant. Some scientists are also predicting the risk of a third wave coming from the new Delta Plus.
Where have you got Delta Plus till now?
The Delta Plus variant of Corona has been found in India, America and Britain. Delta Plus has already been confirmed in 40 samples out of 7 states of India. Of these, 16 samples were taken from Maharashtra in April. Still no further information has been revealed about it. At present, the figure of its cases has reached 50.
Which vaccine works on Delta Plus?
Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) DG Dr. Balram Bhargava says that the second wave is not over yet, but the good thing is that Coveshield and Covaxin have proved effective on all the variants so far.
Dr. Bhargava said that the Delta Plus variant is currently present in 12 countries. So far 50 cases have been identified in 11 states in the country. Research is ongoing on how effective the current vaccine will be on the Delta Plus variant. Dr. Bhargava informed that the vaccine efficiencies are being identified for Delta Plus only on the basis of the variants – Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta so far. Its results will be available in the next 7 to 10 days.
People are skeptical about which vaccine will prove to be effective on this variant. But scientists from the US National Institute of Health say that the vaccine is effective on both the forms of the corona, Delta and Delta Plus.
How dangerous is Delta Plus?
Some scientists believe, it can spread infection rapidly, but so far no evidence has been found for this. For the last two months, the presence of Delta Plus has been seen in many states, but the number of cases has not shown a sharp rise here. In some states, the reason for the increasing cases is being told to unlock. However, this new variant does reduce the effect of artificial antibodies given in some corona patients.
