The only way to escape is to follow the precautionary rules related to carona
Principal of Andhra Medical College, PV Sudhakar, says that the incubation period (period of symptom emergence from infected people) of the new variant is short. The disease progresses very rapidly. In earlier cases, it took at least a week for the infected patient to reach critical condition. But now three to four days. Due to this, the demand for ICU beds has increased a lot. Experts also say that apart from this, this virus is infecting in very less contact this time. Due to this an infected is bringing four to five in a short time. The most important thing is that no one is escaping from it.
