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.

What are the symptoms of Omicron variant, how to recognize?

In response to this question, Dr. Ashish Jain says, “At present, as much information has been revealed about the Omicron variant as doctors and researchers in England and South Africa are telling.” At present, it is believed that it is a mild form of the virus. There could be a number of reasons why Omicron is mild in nature compared to the delta variant, which will be better known by studies in the coming days. The symptoms of Omicron infection are mild.

Not many cases of severe infection
Dr Deepak explains, Omicron has a higher infection rate than other variants. However, it is a matter of relief that the data coming out of Omicron shows that its hospitalization rate is very low. Very few cases of serious cases have been reported from this. This will be understood better in the coming days.

Are there more infections in certain age groups?
Dr Deepak explains, it was believed that the age group of people who have not been vaccinated, means especially children may be more prone to infection. However, in the context of India, there is no such data which confirms this. In countries like the US and the UK, where a large number of people are being diagnosed with infection every day, even in those countries, researchers are currently unable to tell about the infection in a particular age group. The danger is in all people, all people should keep taking safety measures.
