New Delhi: Along with the year 2020, this year 2021 is also battling the havoc of Corona, the whole world including India has been greatly affected by the coronavirus which has shaken the systems of big countries. Since last year till now, the coronavirus has mutated several times and its variants have caused terrible destruction. Once again a new variant of coronavirus has surfaced, due to which the concern of people in India has increased. Concerns are being raised by the people of India that this new variant may again bring dark clouds of danger to India. Scientists have confirmed that the new variant is named Delta Plus and is a mutant of the Delta or B.1.617.2 variant also known as ‘AY.1’.
Scientists told that the delta variant is also responsible for the variants due to which the second wave of coronavirus came in India this year, it remains a matter of concern in India, but it is not yet confirmed how harmful the new variant will prove to be. It is possible.
How much information is available about the new variant?
Experts say that due to the mutation of K417N, B.1.617.2 is formed, which is also called AY.1. Experts say that this new variant is the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 which enters the human cell and infects it. The frequency of K417N in India is not high yet, but the risk of this variant is high in Europe, Asia and America. This variant was first found in Europe in March this year.
How does it react against drugs?
Experts are telling that Delta Plus is resistant to the monoclonal antibody cocktail authorized for Kovid-19 in India. Recently, a cocktail of Casirivimab and Imdevimab was given authorization for emergency use by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization. Roche India and Ciplas, which make this cocktail in India, have fixed the price of these antibody cocktails around 60 thousand for a dose.
Monoclonal antibodies are artificially made in the lab which prove to be effective against this disease. The monoclonal antibodies to Casirivimab and Imdevimab block the virus from entering human cells. This new mutation may be able to evade the human immune response.
How contagious is this new variant?
It is very important to find out how contagious this variant is so that it can be found out how fast it can spread. Experts believe that the quality and quantity of neutralizing antibodies produced inside people infected with this new mutation may not be affected by this new variant. That is why if a person is infected with this variant, it will not be a matter of concern. Experts believe that due to this new variant, there is no alarm bell in India.
