Covid 19 new variant Vui 202012/01 – So here we go again as if one strain was not enough? We always say, two is better than one but I think, in this case, none is better than one sounds more appropriate. So as we all know the first case of Covid-19 was reported in December 2019, in the earlier not so popular but now very famous city of Wuhan, China. The year 2020 was the most difficult year for the entire world. Isolation, lockdowns, unemployment, deaths, and many other keywords can be used to define this year.
VUI New variant of the coronavirus – But at the end there was a hope that maybe the coming year will be better, things will change, the sun will shine and we will be able to go back to our normal lives, that the coming new year will bring a new ray of hope, but who knew the virus heard and decided that the NEW YEAR deserves a NEW ME!!
Just when the world was beginning to think that with a vaccine in sight, the pandemic situation can be controlled, a newly identified strain of the virus left countries puzzled once again. The new variant of the coronavirus named ‘VUI – 202012/01’ (the first Variant Under Investigation in December 2020) was first detected in southern England in September. It is blamed for sharp, exponential rises in coronavirus infections across London, Kent, parts of Essex and Hertfordshire. While most mutations are either harmful to the virus or have no effect, a few mutations in this new variant could potentially affect the spread of coronavirus.
Covid 19 new variant – In an interview, Prof Alan McNally, an expert at the University of Birmingham, asked the people not to be hysterical. He said that we are not sure if it’s more transmissible or more infectious or dangerous. He said that the researchers are making huge efforts at characterising the variant and understanding its emergence. He asked people to keep a calm and rational perspective on the strain as this is normal virus evolution and new variants are expected to come and go and emerge over time.
Novel coronavirus disease Vui 202012/01 – According to the experts, the best way to curb the infection is to stick to the rules – wash your hands, wear a face mask, and maintain social distancing. The recommended control measures to limit the spread of the new variant continue to be tested, following the existing guideline of isolation, and abiding by the restrictions. As the threat continuing to grow unabated, these are truly tough times for everyone. Stay informed about what’s happening in your community, and always follow the directions of state and local authorities.
