New Delhi, 26 November
: A new strain of Corona virus (New Corona variant B.1.1.529) has been found in South Africa. This can lead to a faster spread of corona infection. The administration on Thursday said 22 patients had been infected with the variant. A virologist from Imperial College London, Dr. Tom Peacock posted information about the new strain of the virus on his Twitter account earlier this week (b.1.1.529). Scientists have been searching for this type of thing ever since. This new variant is said to be more dangerous than the Delta variant of the Corona. Professor Tulio de Oliveira, director of the Center for Epidemic Response and Innovation in South Africa, said: ‘This is a very different type of mutant virus, which can spread rapidly. This type of virus has again created a frightening atmosphere and its cases are increasing very fast. According to the report, a new type of covid with more than 30 mutations is spreading in South Africa. Meanwhile, Britain’s Health Minister Sajid Javid has announced a temporary suspension of flights to six African countries. He said that these countries would be included in the red list. Also, passengers in the UK will have to be quarantined. Data is now limited Professor Adrian Puren, Acting Executive Director, NICD, said, “It is not surprising that a new type has been found in South Africa. Although the data so far are limited, our experts are constantly working with all installed monitoring systems to understand new types of corona. Types of corona have caused a new wave of infections in many countries. Under such circumstances, sanctions could be extended once again in South Africa. Read this – Be careful!
