Amidst the fears of the third wave of the corona, severe forms of corona have been detected in Punjab, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Kerala, and Gujarat, including the capital Delhi, which can increase the speed of corona infection.
Meanwhile, the Union Health Ministry has advised people to take special precautions. In fact, the presence of ‘alpha’, ‘beta’, ‘gamma’, and ‘delta’ forms of corona have been detected in 174 districts across the country. Due to these new forms of the corona, once again the risk of rapid infection of the corona has arisen. Not only this, but these new forms are also catching people who have taken vaccine doses.
Let us tell you, so far more than 120 mutations of the coronavirus have been identified in India, but out of these, alpha, beta, gamma, and delta forms have shown the most effect. After this, the ‘Delta Plus’ format is also growing rapidly.
