Nu variant is highly contagious
Tam sim no Variant – in a possible explanation of the rapid spread of the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV2 virus, a new study has found this particular variant has a much higher ability to infect and evade the immune response built through previous infections or vaccines.
In a study published in Nature journal, a team of researchers from India and other countries has found that the Delta variant (or B.1.617.2 lineage) was eight times more likely to escape immunity gained through AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccines compared to the original virus. Ib yam ntxiv, the Delta variant was six times more likely to re-infect people who have recovered from Covid-19.
Raws li UCL thaum tib lub lim tiam, tus Mu variant accounted for more than 80% ntawm cov xwm txheej tshiab hauv Asmeskas. Cov kws paub txog kev noj qab haus huv hais tias nws yog ib yam tshiab rau tus kab mob tshiab kom kis tau ntau dua vim tias feem ntau nws ua tau zoo dua thiab kis tau yooj yim dua.
Hauv cov zej zog uas muaj tus nqi txhaj tshuaj qis dua, tshwj xeeb tshaj yog cov nyob deb nroog uas muaj kev nkag tau rau kev saib xyuas tsawg, the Nu variant could be even more damaging. Qhov no twb tau pom thoob ntiaj teb hauv cov tebchaws txom nyem uas tsis tau txhaj tshuaj tiv thaiv COVID-19 li. Cov kws paub txog kev noj qab haus huv hais tias yuav muaj kev cuam tshuam rau ntau xyoo tom ntej.
Qhov tseem ceeb ntawm COVID-19 kab mob tau tso rov qab rau kev tiv thaiv
1. Nu is more contagious than the other virus strains.
2. Cov neeg tsis tau txhaj tshuaj yuav muaj kev pheej hmoo.
3. Nu could lead to ‘hyperlocal outbreaks.’
4. There is still more to learn about Nu Variant.
5. Vaccination is the best protection against Nu Variant.
