Omicron Vs Delta : Know the difference between these two varaints through these symptoms

The number of patients infected with corona in the country is increasing daily. Omicron, a new variant of Kovid, is spreading rapidly around the world. In India too, most patients are feared to be infected with Omicron.

It is not correct to say anything about this without genome sequencing of samples of patients infected with Omicron. Health experts believe that due to the lack of genome sequencing facilities in India, a small number of people are being tested for variants

Omicron Vs Delta : Know the difference between these two varaints through these symptoms

The number of patients infected with corona in the country is increasing daily. Omicron, a new variant of Kovid, is spreading rapidly around the world. In India too, most patients are feared to be infected with Omicron.

It is not correct to say anything about this without genome sequencing of samples of patients infected with Omicron. Health experts believe that due to the lack of genome sequencing facilities in India, a small number of people are being tested for variants. In the rest of the patients, the new variant can only be guessed. If you pay attention to these things, then corona positive people in the country can also guess which variant they are infected with which variant is affecting most of the people here.

Health expert doctors say that in the RTPCR test, it is not known which variant of the corona patient is infected. Whether it is Omicron or Delta or has been infected by any other variant, it is revealed only in genome sequencing.

Find the variant from the data of genome sequencing

According to the doctor, even though only a small number of samples are being genome sequencing in India, but out of all the cases that are going for genome sequencing, in about 80 percent of the cases, the new variant Omicron of Kovid is being confirmed. Since, these samples are taken at random for sequencing. That is, wherever more cases of corona suddenly come to the fore, some samples are taken from there to test the Omicron variant. Accordingly, it cannot be said that more patients in India are from Omicron, but can only be estimated on the basis of data.

Variant estimation due to increase in Covid cases

According to the doctor, the second factor that confirms Omicron in patients is the infection rate of this variant. It has been observed that Omicron is about 70 percent more infectious than the previously reported variant, which is spreading rapidly. It is airborne and infects more people. If we look at the previous figures, then it will be known that during the delta variant, the number of Covid patients in a week did not increase as much as it is being seen this time. In just one week, the cases of Covid are not seen doubling or thrice but increasing manifold. That is, it can also be said on this basis that this time only Omicron variant is spreading the infection mainly in the country.

Symptoms of illness are also mild

According to the doctor, compared to April to June 2021, mild symptoms are coming out due to this time being Covid. In this, fever, cold, cold, cough, body ache or headache are being seen for a day or two. In many cases, patients do not even have any symptoms. This time the number of serious patients is very less.
