The government is on high alert with the sudden increase in Kovid cases in the country, especially in 5 states. Are there mutant strains on the corona virus?
The government is on high alert with the sudden increase in Kovid cases in the country, especially in 5 states. 800 to 900 samples were sent from Maharashtra and Kerala for genome sequencing in the wake of fears that mutant strains are booming in relation to the corona virus. Special labs have been set up for this. Sources in the health ministry said it had also asked for similar samples to be sent from the cities of Punjab and Bangalore. The department said it had already tested 6,000 genome sequencing samples in the country. New mutant strains will be analyzed to determine if the corona virus is re-emerging. The department said the matter would be clarified in another four to five days. Genome sequencing is the study of genetic tissue in more depth. For this purpose, ten surveillance sites or labs have been set up in the country.
It will also determine whether mutants entering India from other countries are the cause or whether new mutant strains have arisen in the country itself. Head of the Task Force, Dr NK aisiemar kovid Speaking on the occasion, Aurora said that unlike the European model, there is no trace of the fast-spreading UK variant in India. So far 187 UK variant cases have been reported in our country.
Meanwhile, the Center has sent an action plan to Maharashtra, Kerala, Goa, AP and Chandigarh. Stated that mutant strains should be monitored through testing, as well as genome sequencing.
