Well, to say off the bat, we would like to clear it up that this one variant is not seen as a threat or trouble like the other variants. It is a distant relative of the delta variant, so we have got it named the delta plus variant. It was discovered last month by scientists in Britain. This did lead to some initial trouble and chaos as it was uncertain how much this new variant was harmful to the people.
But now it has been clear, and a lot of info is also available regarding this one. It is indeed a variant of the delta strand of the corona that is said to be highly contagious and harmful, but the delta plus is not harmful or a threat to the life of anyone. So that is a relief to know.
The scientists are still keeping a track of the virus, and they are trying to keep out an eye for any other potential threats too. There had been a report from the United Kingdom that said that the delta plus variant of the coronavirus is not much, and it had affected only 6% of the total population in the country. The spread of the virus is hardly near the contagious nature of the delta strand of the coronavirus that had created havoc across the globe.
Delta variant is still the most dominant strand of the coronavirus in the country. It is said that it is still evolving, and the chance for the virus to mutate is very high. While we do not have to worry much about the delta plus variant yet, but there is a chance in the future that a more deadly and more contagious variant can emerge from the mutations that are taking place.
We sure do hope that such a thing does not happen, but it’s not really in our hands. We can do the best we can by trying to stop the spread of the virus and hope for the best. That’s all for now. Take care of yourself!
