Corona infection continues to wreak havoc in India. Meanwhile, a new variant of Corona has appeared in the country, named AP Strain. This variant has been found in Andhra Pradesh. In scientific language it is being called the N440K variant. It has been discovered by scientists of the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB). It is being told that this variant is 15 times more infectious than the current variant. Because of this people are getting sick within 3-4 days.
The AP strain i.e. N440K variant was first discovered in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh. This variant is more powerful than the B1.617 and B1.618 variants. Visakhapatnam District Magistrate V. Vinay Chand said that several variants are being investigated at the CCMB at this time. Which variant is dangerous, only CCMB scientists will be able to tell. New strain samples have been sent to the laboratory.
It is seen that the new AP strain i.e. N440K variant of Corona virus is developing soon. Its incubation period and the time frame for spreading the disease are short. It is spreading very fast. Also infecting more people. People infected with the new variant are reaching critical condition within 3 to 4 days.
The first corona is not a wave-like condition. This time new variants are increasingly making people sick. Scientists are still paranoid about the AP strain variant. Because it is difficult to tell more about it. This virus is rapidly targeting young people. This variant is not leaving even those who take care of fitness or whose immunity is strong. Cytokine storms are coming in people’s bodies.
There are currently five main variants spread across South India. B.1, B.1.1.7, B.1.351, B.1.617 and B.1.36 * (N440K). It is seen that the AP strain variant is spreading very fast in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana in South India.
