Coronavirus 4th Wave, New Corona Variant Coronavirus infection cases are increasing very fast across the country amid strong signs of the arrival of the fourth wave of corona. A day earlier, a new variant BA.12 of Omicron has been identified in Bihar, while Covid patients infected with XE variants have been found in Gujrat and Mumbai.
The fear of corona has increased in the country after getting many variants of corona with new look and symptoms by continuously mutating. However, it is a matter of relief that Corona, who returned with the fourth wave, is not taking the lives of those infected this time.
The next variant of COVID-19 will be more lethal. In this regard, the World Health Organisation, WHO has given this stern warning amid increasing cases of coronavirus worldwide. WHO has said what will be the next variant of the coronavirus, even though there is still uncertainty about it. But, the speed with which these mutants are happening, it remains a matter of great concern for us. So far, many sub-variants of the Omicron variant have been revealed. These include BA.2, BA.2.12.1 etc.
The organisation has said that the Covid vaccine is the most effective weapon in saving people's lives and fighting the coronavirus. Its scope needs to be expanded. However, it is a matter of relief that the graph of deaths due to corona has come down rapidly. The organisation has said that concrete preparations should be made from now on to prevent the spread of new variants of corona. At present, the pace of investigation of coronavirus in the country is very slow. In Jharkhand, the investigation is being done negligibly.
At present, in the investigation of rapidly increasing Covid cases, it has been found that people are getting infected with the highest number of Omicron BA.2 variants. The ba.12 strain of the Omicron variant has similar characteristics. In this, the infected have body ache, fever, headache, sore throat, abdominal pain and trouble in breathing as well as nervousness and restlessness. The Omicron BA.12 variant may be 10 times more dangerous than BA.2, but more precautions need to be taken to prevent it. Earlier in Delhi also two to three cases of BA.12 have been found.
