Corona New Variant IHU Discovered in France
According to the news website Daily Mail, Variant IHU has been discovered in France. In Marseille (Variant IHU in Marseille) of France, 12 cases of the new variant have been reported. These cases have been seen in those people who had returned from the African country of Cameroon.
Omicron’s havoc in France
At present, it is not clear how deadly and infectious Variant IHU will be. Because at present, the Omicron variant is wreaking havoc in France. Out of the total corona cases coming, 60 per cent are from Omicron. The Méditerranee Infection Foundation discovered this variant on 10 December. It is a matter of relief that the Variant IHU is not spreading fast at present.
It is also yet to be seen whether the Variant IHU has reached other countries. Then the World Health Organization (WHO) will investigate further by labelling it Variant Under Investigation.
Professor Philip Colson, head of the team that discovered the new variant, said that the test found that it is made of the E484K mutation, making it more vaccine-resistant. Meaning that the vaccine affects it, its chances are less.
Omicron cases are increasing rapidly in India.
The Omicron variant was found before IHU. Through Africa, this variant has reached many countries, including India. It is not considered as deadly as Delta or Delta Plus, but it spreads much faster than that.
The Ministry of Health has said that the total number of Omicron cases has increased to 1,892. Maharashtra and Delhi have the highest number of 568 and 382 cases of Omicron. Out of 1,892 patients of Omicron, 766 patients have recovered.
