B.1.617 and ITS FAMILY CATAGORIZED AS VARIANTS OF CONCERN (VOC) by WHO:
The matter of concern about these VOC’s are ,
* they are not only identified to be linked with Increased Transmission(Exponential spread more as we witness now),
* they are also known to evade diagnostic tests,
* some of them seem to be evading antibodies, also being positive even after double inoculated.
These are all matters of concerns for the Indians and the humanity at large. So the research should focus on,
NEWER TESTING KITS THAT WILL NOT ALLOW THESE VOC’S (variants oc concern) TO EVADE THE DIAGNOSTIC KITS. And as more research is being done in the Field of Vaccines,
MORE EFFECTIVE VACCINES SHOULD BE CONTEMPLATED TO AVOID THE VARIANTS DODGING THE INTIBODIES & VACCINES.
But nevertheless, must follow the Virologists Advice to
Mask when going out,
