The infection of the Omicron variant of corona is increasing rapidly in all countries of the world including India. In countries like Britain and America, the situation is getting worse, while in India too, the number of infected with this variant of corona has increased to more than 350 in a few days. Studies are claiming that this variant of the corona is highly contagious and can put people at risk of infection even who have received both doses of the vaccine. At the same time, in a report, IIT experts are claiming that if the situation keeps deteriorating, then perhaps a third wave can come in the country by February.
There will be many questions in your mind regarding this new variant of Corona. Taking a special initiative, Amar Ujala organized a web-show to know the answers to these questions, in which well-known respiratory specialist Dr Ashish Jain and epidemiologist Dr Deepak Saxena answered all the important questions in the country. Let us know about this in detail further.
What is Omicron variant?
Epidemiologist Dr Deepak Saxena explains, for any virus to survive, it is necessary to keep mutating itself. The way all the variants of Corona like Delta, Alpha, Beta were revealed earlier, the Omicron variant is also the same. About 70 percent of the people in the corona cases have a travel history, while 30 percent do not. Which shows that Omicron’s community transmission is taking place, which people need to be very careful about.
