New Delhi, The new variant of Corona, which has created havoc all over the world, has become a new headache for the World Health Organization (WHO). WHO has expressed the possibility of a new wave of corona virus infection again in the whole world. According to WHO, the new variant of Corona XBB.1.5 has been considered as the most infectious form so far. It has been described as a sub-variant of Omicron (Omicron sub-variant XBB.1.5) which has the ability to mutate itself very rapidly.
XBB.1.5 has so far been reported in 38 countries where cases of corona have also increased rapidly. WHO told that at present people infected with XBB.1.5 subvariant have been found in 38 countries. The health organization has expressed the possibility of spreading it in other countries. Along with this, it was also told that due to the slow pace of genome sequencing worldwide, it has become difficult to gather information about other variants of Kovid-19. Let us tell you that this variant is responsible for 80 percent of the cases in America alone.
neutralizing the vaccine
It has been seen in many cases that even the people who have taken the corona vaccine have been caught by this new variant. Although the cases of people taking the vaccine falling seriously ill are not being seen. So it can be said that the vaccine can save you from getting hospitalized or getting seriously ill. In view of the outbreak of XBB.1.5, doctors are also advising to take booster dose as soon as possible.
26 cases found in India
According to INSACOG data, the number of cases of the XBB.1.5 variant of COVID-19 responsible for the increase in cases in the US has risen to 26 in India. The Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG) said that cases of the XBB.1.5 variant have so far been detected in 11 states and union territories, including Delhi, Maharashtra and West Bengal.
Fear of new wave of corona infection
WHO official Maria Van told that the more the XBB.1.5 subvariant is spreading, the more it is likely to change. Maria said that a new wave of corona infection may come in the world, but this time a large number of people will not die. Giving the reason for this, he said that this time the process of dealing with Corona is also going on, so that people can be saved from going to death. Please tell that at this time China remains a threat to the whole world.
