New Delhi. With the arrival of new cases, the total number of patients infected with the Omicron variant of corona virus in India has now reached 33. According to experts, the Omicron variant is spreading less rapidly than Delta due to mild symptoms. However, experts said that this is partly due to the nature of this new version. He cited another reason for the reduction in the spread of Omicron, which is also possible due to the high rate of sero-positivity of Indians.
Rakesh Mishra, former director of CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, told PTI, “India has benefited from a high rate of ‘sero-positivity’ of 70 to 80 percent, and more than 90 percent of people in big cities already have It’s just antibodies.” Mishra said that even if people are infected with Omicron, it will be very mild and mostly asymptomatic. Referring to the fresh waves in Europe, Mishra said that even without Omicron, a new wave of epidemics can come.
‘Three main weapons against the waves of the epidemic’
Ruling out the possibility of an increase in the number of hospitalizations, he said that wearing masks, maintaining social distance and getting immunized are the three main weapons against future waves of epidemics. Mishra said that it may not happen that new variants do not come up, and the general trend is that new variants should be milder and more contagious. However, it is possible that an unexpectedly dangerous version may emerge.
