World Health Organization (WHO): The nature of the coronavirus found in India can cause trouble for the whole world. The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned of this. Announcing the B1.617 variant of the coronavirus, first identified in India last year, the WHO said that this highly lethal version of the virus has reached 44 countries in the world so far.
The WHO continually assesses what changes in SARS COV-2 (coronavirus) patterns have changed in terms of transference and severity, or because of the need for changes in public health and social standards implemented by governments.
The Global Health Organization presented a weekly epidemiological report on Tuesday, stating that 4,500 sequences of Kovid viruses have been uploaded by GISAD as of May 11 and that the presence of the B1.617 form has been found in a sample of people from 44 countries. . The most worrying thing is that these 44 countries come from all the 6 regions of WHO.
That is, this Indian form of the virus has reached all corners of the world. Explain that GISAD is a global scientific initiative and primary source providing open access to the genome data of novel coronaviruses responsible for the Kovid-19 pandemic.
Based on the data of GISAD, WHO has declared B.1.617 as a worrisome format (VOC). The WHO stated that the rate of the outbreak of sacrosanct is higher in B.1.617.
According to the global body, preliminary evidence has shown that this form decreases the efficacy of the bamalanivimab, a monoclonal antibody used to treat Kovid-19.
This increases the death rate despite treatment. The B1.617 format of Kovid-19 was first seen in India in October 2020. The increasing cases and deaths of Kovid-19 in India have raised questions about the role of this form.
When are the worrisome forms of virus called?
The virus has an inherently far more dangerous effect, which is considered to be worrisome. The original form of the coronavirus was first seen in China in the last months of 2019. The risk arising from any form is more likely to spread the infection, more lethality, and less effect of vaccines.
Concern over religious-political events in India
The WHO has assessed the threat from the rapid rise in cases of Kovid-19 in India. In this assessment, several factors have been attributed to the worsening of the situation, including the spread of infection due to the changing forms of the virus, religious and political programs, non-adherence to the policy laid down by the government to stop the spread of infection. The WHO has also raised concerns about this.
Only 0.1 percent of data upload from India
According to the WHO, only 0.1% of the positive samples found in India have been prepared and uploaded to GISAD. In India, the B1.617.1 and B1.617.2 formats were identified in the last days of April and since then only 21% and 7% sequence samples of both these new formats have been produced.
WHO did not consider B.1.617 as the Indian form?
The Union Health Ministry has objected to the B1,617, a lethal version of the coronavirus, being called the Indian version. The ministry said on Wednesday that the WHO has not used the word Indian anywhere in its 32-page documents for this edition so far.
The ministry has also rejected media reports that described it as Indian. The ministry termed these reports as baseless and baseless.
