Now scientists there have said that a new type of coronavirus 'NeoCov' has been found in South Africa. Both its infection and death rate are very high. It can kill one out of every three people infected. Omicron may have spread rapidly, but remained less lethal than COVID-19. But the NeoCov virus is a more lethal variant of the virus. Wuhan Scientists have reportedly warned that the death rate and infection rate of NeoCov is much higher.
According to a report by Russian news agency Sputnik, the NeoCov virus is linked to the MERS-CoV virus that was discovered in the Middle-Eastern countries in 2012-15. It is similar to SARS Cov 2, from which the corona virus was spread among humans.
It is a matter of relief that the new coronavirus has not yet spread to humans.
