Coronavirus, when the virus mutates, how long does it take to change from one strain to another? Learn when a virus mutates how long does it take to change from one strain to another
The threat of corona virus remains constant
The Kovid 19 virus keeps on mutating and its threat remains constant. New variants of the virus keep coming, which increases the risk among people. The virus is mutating, so it is believed that the third wave of corona virus may come right now. Cases have suddenly started increasing in England and lockdown is being imposed again there.
The question arises about the mutate of the virus that when the virus mutates, how long does it take to change from one strain to another?
According to ‘Akashvani News’, Dr. Anoop Kumar of Safdarjung Hospital said, ‘SARS Kovid 19 virus is an RNA virus. We know that influenza viruses are flu viruses, they also mutate. When the virus replicates, then it mutates, and when immunity is created in the host ie human body with the replica, it changes very rapidly to survive in the body, so that immunity can escape. There is a glycoprotein inside the covid, it is the outer protein and most of the variations are being seen in this. The second wave was most lethal because the double mutation was caused by the delta plus variant. Its ability to infect others was 40-70 percent more. However, the only way to avoid all this is to wear a mask and get the vaccine.
Vaccination campaign against corona is going on in our country. So far more than 27 crore doses have been given. In such a situation, the question is, can we now expect herd immunity?
In response to this, Dr. Neeraj Nischal of AIIMS says, ‘In the last wave also some people had said that we have reached very close to herd immunity, but nothing like this was seen. Our predictions about the virus always prove it wrong. We cannot be careless in the matter of herd immunity. Nothing is clear about it yet. You can no longer rely on antibody tests. Follow the covid appropiate behavior and get yourself vaccinated whenever you get a chance.
