There is a worrying rise in coronavirus infections around the world. One of the main reasons public health experts are blaming this new wave of the corona is the Delta-type expansion. CNN Online has explored why Delta is spreading faster than all other types of the corona.
The Delta Corona is a highly contagious type, CNN Online reports. The World Health Organization (WHO) says the alpha type of corona was first identified in the UK late last year. This type is characterized as highly contagious. But Delta spreads 55 percent faster than Alpha.
Andy Slavit, a former adviser to US President Joe Biden’s Corona Coalition, said Delta should be considered a 2020 version of the Covid-19.
Coronavirus originated and spread in China in late 2019. The virus then spread throughout the world in the form of epidemics. The characteristic of coronavirus is that it is regularly converted. In the process of this transformation, many types or versions of the virus have already been created in the world. Delta is one of them.
The first coronary delta type was identified in India in late 2020. It was initially called the Indian type of corona. The WHO later renamed it Delta Variant. The scientific name of the species (B.1.617). In May, the WHO listed the Corona Delta as a “worrying type.”
Once the delta type of corona is identified in India, it spreads rapidly in the country. At one stage the corona delta type became predominant in India. Due to the Delta type, the second wave of Corona in India is deadly. The country was devastated by the infection. This virtually broke down India’s healthcare system.
The Corona Delta type was later identified in the United Kingdom. Then one by one the news of the identification of the Delta type began to come.
According to the WHO, the delta type of corona has been identified in about 100 countries around the world. The WHO warns that delta infections are on the rise around the world. As a result, this type of corona can quickly outperform all other types. Thus, Delta Corona could soon become the dominant type in the world.
Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, said the delta was the most contagious of all the versions of the virus that have been identified since the start of the Corona epidemic. “It (Delta) is really contagious,” he said.
The first coronary delta type was identified in the United States last March. More than half of the patients identified in the United States in early July were infected with the delta. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the rate has now reached 63.
CDC Director Rachel Walensky said the rate of increase in coronary delta infections in the United States is dramatic.
The corona delta type is found in all 50 states of the United States. So the question is, how is this type of corona spreading so fast?
One study indicated that this delta type could spread the infection faster among humans than any other type of corona. Because the type can make many ‘copies’ of itself in the human body at a fast rate.
Chinese scientists have studied patients infected with the delta. In this case, they compared delta-infected patients with infected patients at the beginning of the epidemic. They found that the presence of the virus in the body of delta-infected patients is much higher. In comparison, this amount is 1,280 times more.
Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, said those who are infected with the delta type have a much higher risk of contracting the virus. In a very short time after the virus enters the body, it is increasing a lot. This time is five or seven minutes. Without it, no one would have to come within six feet of an infected person to be infected.
People who have not been vaccinated are the ones who are getting infected in Delta, said Ashish Jha. “People are getting infected easily from the delta,” he added.
2 18 died in Mymensingh Medical Corona Unit
Another 18 people died in the dedicated corona unit at Mymensingh Medical College Hospital. The hospital authorities have confirmed that the 18 people died between 8 am on Saturday and 8 am on Sunday. Of these, 10 died of coronary heart disease and 6 died of symptoms.
