#Kolkata: The new species of coronavirus, Omicron Variant, is causing panic all over the world. In the words of the doctors, new thoughts are growing. This omicron is quite different from the Delta Variant species that spread the most in the first and second waves of the corona. On 24 November, South Africa reported the first Omicron species to the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization on Friday described the newly discovered species as “worrying”. This species is a matter of concern, the agency said. This classification puts the Omicron Variant in the most contagious category of covid species. This category includes delta, alpha, beta, and other deadly infectious species, including gamma. This species (Omicron variant) could pose a new global threat. The new species has been found in at least 23 countries around the world, including Botswana, Italy, Hong Kong, Australia, the United States, Nigeria, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada and Israel. (Omicron Variant)
A lot of information about Omicron Variant is still unknown. Many things remain in speculation. Angelique Coetzee, chairperson of the South African Medical Association, who discovered the Omicron variant. He explored and explained various aspects of this new species (Omicron Variant), which have yet to be revealed.
Symptoms may differ from Omicron Variant to other species:
Still, the SARs-COV-2 virus is known for its widespread and unexpected symptoms. More serious illnesses including fever, fatigue, persistent cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness. We are now mostly familiar with these symptoms of covid. I also know about various symptoms and illnesses after recovering from covid. However, I still don’t know anything about the new species. Angelique Quetzi said there were currently no serious reports of Omicron. There is still no situation to be admitted to the hospital. Patients do not have symptoms such as decreased oxygen levels. According to the doctor, people infected with Omicron are reporting mild symptoms such as fatigue and body aches instead of sore throats. No one said the nose was closed. Those who have been infected with the new species do not have a high fever, and most of the time the symptoms get better.
Is Omicron Variant more contagious than Delta?
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the Omicron species a concern. However, there is no specific information on whether it is more endangered or contagious than the Delta species. The World Health Organization (WHO) said in a statement that “the evidence suggests a harmful mutation in covid is based on the evidence presented. The consequences could be serious. “
It will take a few weeks for the Omicron variant to be tested for infection, corona vaccine, corona test and treatment. Only then will the matter be understood. Since no deaths have yet been reported from the Omicron species, it is unclear whether it is more contagious than the Delta. Various researches and discussions are going on to know this.
In an interview, Angelique Quetzi said the new species is definitely contagious. However, it has not yet been determined whether it is more contagious and contagious than the Delta variant. In the last few days, the number of daily attacks in South Africa has almost doubled to over eight and a half thousand. Scientists say that this infection has increased due to Omicron.
Infections of the new species have been reported in adolescents, including children:
Doctors in South Africa say the Omicron species is primarily affecting people under the age of 30. Many children are also affected. Most patients have only mild symptoms, none of them are seriously ill. Some have reported fever. However, doctors have expressed concern for the future. They say it can take days to weeks to understand the intensity of the Omicron species.
Multiple mutations in spike proteins: Does this mean that the vaccine is less effective?
One of the most endangered aspects of the Omicron species is that it has more than 30 mutations in its spike protein, which potentially helps it to develop an ‘immune-escape mechanism’. Spike protein is a compound that helps the virus enter the host cell, making it more contagious and contagious. On the other hand, most covid vaccines work to eliminate these spike proteins. It has been suggested that mutations in spike proteins make it more difficult to identify and isolate new species. That is why it may make the available covid vaccines less effective.
Viruses change over time. With this in mind, scientists and physicians believe that the Covid ticker may need to be updated, just like the Influenza shots. Changing the vaccine or creating a new vaccine for different species can prevent the spread of the virus and its species.
Immunizations and immunizations are very important:
In light of the current crisis, vaccines play a vital role not only in preventing the spread but also in eliminating the possibility of serious illness. However, there is a risk of infection even after vaccination. Infected people can spread serious infections, experts say. By far, the Covid Vaccine is the most effective alternative to Covid. So it is more dangerous not to get it. Omicron species have the potential to spread internationally, so the World Health Organization has called on countries to speed up vaccination. In addition, wearing a mask, avoiding overcrowded areas, and maintaining social distance are just as important as ever. The government needs to increase the surveillance of health officials. Newly appropriate covid restrictions must be imposed. Currently, many countries have imposed travel bans in the wake of the Omicron outbreak.
India has also decided not to resume international commercial flights from December 15. The center has decided not to launch the service for the time being due to concerns over Omicron. The decision will be taken later after examining the situation, the Ministry of Civil Aviation said. The current list of ‘dangerous’ countries compiled by the Ministry of Health includes the whole of Europe, including Eland, South Africa, Brazil, Botswana, China, Mauritius, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Singapore, Hong Kong and Israel. Passengers coming from these countries will have to go through the Covid test.
