Scientists believe that the SARS-CoV-2 strains responsible for this second wave in India already contain at least two mutations that make them more dangerous. These mutations are already known to COVID-19 experts. One is in South Africa for the first time, and the other is from a special group believed to have come from California. The researchers believe that the two mutants, in turn, can easily infect human cells and escape the protection of immune cells, such as antibodies. According to the latest data from India’s GISI data collected in March, 38% of India collected in March contain two mutations: Scientists have identified this as “B.1.617”.
“Suddenly,” he says Dr. Ravindra GuptaProfessor of Clinical Microbiology at Cambridge University, B.1.1.7, who studied SARS-CoV-2 virus and various species, including those produced in the United Kingdom. It seems to spread easily among humans, and is now the leading cause of new infections in the UK and America. Probably a combination of social distance, religious gatherings, and new differences. ”
Sumit Chanda, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Sanctuary at the Sanford Burnham Presby Medical Center in San Diego, California, described the situation in India as a “perfect hurricane”. “People have become careless; “Politicians have been declaring the virus a victory – a mission that has been accomplished.” “They decided to do one of the greatest religious ceremonies and mass gatherings in the world – I have seen pictures and no one has a mask, and this is happening in very crowded public centers. Then you have the ‘alternative’ pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up pop up.
According to Chada, mutations are caused by the proliferation of infections in India. Every new person has a new chance of imitating the genes when the virus attacks them. The virus also makes mistakes when it comes to replicating the genome – often these errors sometimes make the virus stronger and stronger. Those “error” versions will be the ones that begin to defeat and dominate other incompatible viruses.
For people who are infected with the virus, this could mean a serious and even fatal disease.
Linn Following India’s first COVID-19 storm in the spring of 2020, health officials shut down the country, but infected people did not fall ill. Of course, the death toll was low. That allows the virus’s natural defenses to develop to some degree. But that amount was not enough to provide anything close to the herd defense. In May 2020, when social restrictions were lifted and people began to regroup, the virus created favorable conditions for change. “Once you are careful,” says Chandane, “these alternatives will basically have more field.” When you have an unbalanced distribution, you give more fuel to the virus to make these mistakes, and stronger viruses appear. ”
Chanda, Gupta and others are investigating whether another cause of serious illness in India is at work. People who have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the past but do not have severe COVID-19 are more likely to get sick if they are re-infected – a variant of other pathogens such as dengue.
Researchers say that people who have been infected and partially successful in fighting the virus “will continue to be infected for months rather than days.” In One such patientGupta, which had been infected for four months, was transformed into a viable and invasive immune system. “Some people can’t get rid of the virus – they get infected and can’t get rid of it – so they have some immunity to the virus but the virus learns to live with their immune system, and adaptation changes. And those same mutations get used to it when they infect another person. ”
It is not clear if this is happening in India, but it may explain why so many people get sick so quickly. In any case, it is reasonable to assume that this is happening from a public health point of view – the response should be to encourage people to take precautionary measures, such as wearing masks and socializing, so that those who have been infected in the past may be helpful when the virus is spreading. We have to plan for the worst case scenario and assume that people are being re-arrested. Gupta said the infection rate is already high and there is little to call for.
India’s experience should serve as a warning to the world as countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States, begin to send aid and aid. The Indian species has previously been reported in the UK and Japan, and specimens from the United States have racial differences, so it is more important than ever to build immunity with vaccines.
Chada is a cautious saying, “If we open bars in India in vain, this could happen to us.” Now we are on stage [in the U.S.] “People are still being vaccinated and we have a very strong immune system.” That is, there is ample time for the virus to move and to avoid hereditary vaccines. The key to preventing that from happening? Get more people vaccinated.
