Maria Van Kerckhove, head of the technical team of the World Health Organization's emergency diseases unit, told reporters that a super-contagious coronavirus mutation dubbed the вЂњIndian strainвЂќ, has already been recorded among residents of 92 countries around the world.
вЂњTo date, WHO knows that in 92 countries there is a variant of вЂњdeltaвЂќ, demonstrating increased transmission from person to person,вЂќ вЂ” said the expert.
Recall, the day before it was reported that in India itself, mutations of the delta virus continue. We already know about 20 people infected with the вЂњdelta plusвЂќ strain (B. 1. 617. 2. 1) in the Indian state of Maharashtra and the city of Ratnagiri.
Experts emphasize that the symptoms of the Indian strain of the disease do not differ significantly from the symptoms of the original, Wuhan coronavirus - a runny nose, sore throat, and headache.
