Coronavirus is constantly changing its form and becoming more dangerous. Its new variants are coming out every day. Now another dangerous variant of it has been found in India. It is so dangerous that the patient can lose weight within seven days of being infected. Earlier this variant was found in Brazil. From there, only one variant of it was confirmed to come to India. However, now scientists say that two variants of corona virus have come to India from Brazil. The name of the second variant is B.126.96.36.199.
Scientists tested this variant on a mouse. Its results were shocking. Scientists have come to know that immediately after being infected, it can be identified within seven days. It is so dangerous that it can reduce the patient's body weight within 7 days. Along with this, like the delta variant, it can also reduce antibody capacity. Scientists at the National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, said that the B.188.8.131.52 variant was found in two people who had come from abroad. Genome sequencing of this variant was done and then tested. At present, there are not many cases of this in India. Whereas the Delta variant is getting the most.
Sequencing of samples of two people who had returned from abroad was done. Both people did not have symptoms until recovery from Corona, but after sequencing their samples, when the B.184.108.40.206 variant was detected, it was tested on nine Syrian hamster rat species) for seven days. Three of these died due to increasing infection in the internal part of the body.
