Corona cases are seeing an increase again across the world, but amidst increasing cases of corona virus, a scary news has come to the fore. According to which the most dangerous variant of Corona has been found in America, whose name is R.1 variant.
What is the Corona virus R.1 variant?
According to the expert, even though the R1 variant has just been identified by research in the US, this variant has been found in Japan last year. Apart from this, the R1 variant has also reached many other countries. Cases of R1 variant of Corona have been found in about 35 countries around the world including America. Their number is more than 10,000. Even though patients with R1 variants are less worldwide, their risk is high.
A third wave of corona is being feared in India too and in the meantime another trouble has come to the fore. The expert has warned people about this statement of corona virus.
Scientists say that despite the low number of cases of R.1 variants, negligence cannot be done. This can prove to be dangerous. So far, given the nature of this variant, it is believed to be quite contagious.
The World Health Organization recently told that the delta variant of corona has engulfed all the countries of the world, while the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has told about the R.1 variant in a weekly report that corona The new R.1 variant can be dangerous.
A new report suggests that this variant has infected more than 10,000 people worldwide. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report found that R.1 variants were present in the US since April 2021. It was found in Kentucky nursing homes, where many patients were fully vaccinated.
The R.1 variant is a new variant of SARS-CoV-2 with few mutations observed. In other words, like any new strain, R.1 can affect people differently than the original coronavirus. However, it has not yet been segregated as a variant of concern or interest. Such mutations have been seen in most of the variants of corona that have appeared in the last few months, which can easily neutralize the antibodies made by the vaccine in the body.
Scientists say that whether a variant can evade protection depends on the set of mutations present in that variant, although it has been seen to have less effect in people who have been vaccinated. For the time being, to be safe from such new variants, people should get the vaccine as soon as possible. Even though the new variants can evade the immunity created by the vaccine, the vaccine has been found to be effective in protecting against the risk of serious infection.
