Omicron Variant Of Covid-19 Virus Causes Severe Concern Around Nation

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It has been found that there are some variants that are causing havoc around the nation and the world. The omicron variant of the covid-19 virus has caused some concern all over the world because of the changes it has experienced in the spike protein. There have been 30 mutations in the spike protein of the virus which has made it more virulent and provided an escape hatch that can help it to infect people who are completely vaccinated. 

The variant needs to be analyzed very carefully in order to make sure that it does affect the population as negatively as it is being presumed. The presence of the spike protein may make the entry of the virus’s genetic material into the human body.

The Comment Of The Experts On Omicron Variant

The experts have informed that the omicron variant has more than 30 mutations in the protein region of the spikes. This has provided it with the method of immune escape mechanism. The vaccines make an effect on the human body by producing antibodies that might be able to prevent the infection in the future. 

The decreased efficacy of the vaccine is caused because of the increased amount of virulent quality of the virus’ mutated form. This has made the situation quite “critical” in the eyes of the experts.

Restrictions Might Be Imposed Again

The covid-19 restrictions which were already existing within the nation during the last waves of the virus might be introduced again. This will be to protect the common people against the omicron variant of the virus. The states and Union Territories have been requested to provide the necessary protection. 

There will be strict monitoring of the hotspots that might spread the infection. The augmentation of the health infrastructure is also introduced in this scenario to make sure that the devastating effects of the second wave are not seen!
