The situation with the coronavirus in the country is getting worse. This can be gauged from the fact that more cases have not been reported in India alone than in the United States and Brazil. There have been 77,720 new cases of coronavirus in the US and 80,157 cases reported in Brazil. While 1,84,372 new cases of coronavirus have been reported in the last 24 hours in the country. There are many questions on the minds of the coronavirus strain, double mutants, the effects of the corona vaccine, new symptoms of the corona. Know the answers to some important questions


What strains are being found in India right now?


There have been cases of UK, South African, and Brazilian variants of the coronavirus in India. A good number of samples have been found in UK and South African strains, while very few Brazilian strain samples have been found. As of April 11, the data shows that during the genome sequencing of the sample, there were 948 cases in the country of these three variants.


How dangerous is the new variant of Corona?


How dangerous the new variant is can be gauged by the fact that despite the R-TPCR test in many cases the infection with this virus is not being detected. Let us tell you that the RT-PCR test is considered to be suitable for the detection of corona infection.

What is a double mutant? Why is there a lot of discussion about this?


In late March, the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) of India had informed about a new variant 'double mutant'. It is named B.1.617. This is a form of virus whose genome has changed twice. Viruses constantly change their genetic structure to keep themselves effective for a long time so that they cannot be eradicated.


Where are the cases of double mutation?


Some cases of double mutations have been reported in Maharashtra, Delhi, and Punjab. However, no concrete evidence has been found so far that double mutation is wreaking havoc in the current era. Researchers from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) are working to find out what is the role of double mutation behind the latest wave of Covid in the country.


What are the new symptoms of corona infection?


Dr. Arup Basu, Senior Consultant, Sir Gangaram Hospital, says that this time the symptoms of runny nose, colds, and conjunctivitis are also being seen in patients, which were not there before. Many patients are not having phlegm, shortness of breath, and the city scan of the lungs is also normal, but there is a continuous fever for 8-9 days, due to which they have to be admitted to the hospital.


Could it be that the corona has happened and we don't know?


Yes, in the second wave of the corona, when someone got infected with this virus badly, one did not know even after the symptoms when they got corona. That is, people got corona, but they did not even know about it. These people experienced only mild cold or fever for a day or two and also recovered quickly.


Can Corona's antigen and RT-PCR report be inaccurate?


Director of Internal Medicine Department of Max Saket, Dr. Rommel Tikku says that the chances of reports being negative in antigen test are high but in RTPCR test such chances are very less when the report is negative. If you get a test done on the same day of symptoms, then the report may come negative but if you do the test after one or two days of showing the symptoms, then the report will come true.


Do we get safe from the corona forever by taking the vaccine?


No. It's not like that. In the trial so far, the talk of the vaccine is effective for a year has been revealed. That is, if you have taken both doses of covaxine or covishield, then you will be protected from the coronavirus for a year.


Which vaccine works against which strain?


Some senior Indian government officials have claimed that both the Covid vaccine - Covaxin and Covishield, used in the country, are effective against the coronavirus of the UK variant. Covaxin is effective against the Coronavirus variant in both the UK and Brazil. At the same time, Covishield works against the UK variant. How useful it is against the Brazilian variant, its EFICI data has not yet come up.


Is Corona more attack on vaccine users?


Studies of Israeli scientists have claimed that those who have taken the vaccine dose may have an eight-fold increased risk of infection with the South African variant of the coronavirus than those who have not received the vaccine. This claim has caused worldwide outrage.
