Leaked Data Reveals UK Concerned About 1 Version Of Indian Variant Of COVID-19: Report

Increasing covid19 cases in India is a reason of concern for Indian government. But as the same time the world community is also concern to see the pathetic condition and mortality rate. That is due to the new variant of Covid19 virus that is found in India. Health authorities in England are believed to be especially concerned about one strain out of three Indian variants they have been tracking since last month.

Viruses by nature mutate, producing different versions of themselves. Most of these mutations are insignificant but some can make the virus more contagious and harder to vaccinate against. The Indian variant is believed to be largely behind the current surge in infections in India’s ongoing severe second wave of the pandemic.

According to a report based on leaked data by the BBC, Public Health England (PHE) is said to have recommended the B.1.617.2 version of the Indian variant to be classed as Variant of Concern (VOC) as it appears to spread more quickly than two other identified subtypes of the Indian variant.

The version, along with B.1.617 and B.1.617.3, have so far been classed as Variant Under Investigation (VUI), reported news agency Press Trust of India. Latest surveillance data released by PHE indicates 61 more cases of the B.1.617 variant from India with the other two versions still under review, taking the total number of cases to around 500. Experts believe the variant B.1.617.2 is at least as transmissible as the so-called Kent variant, which had been detected in England at the end of last year and led to the UK’s second wave surge in coronavirus infections earlier this year.
