Mr. Shahid Jameel, Chairman of the Advisory Group of the Indian Association for Genetics SARS-CoV-2 (INSACOG), and the country's leading virologist, said that it is not clear that this mutation appeared in the nCoV strain in the country. India or on other races.

However, scientists at the INSACOG forum said that these mutations should be closely monitored, although there is no sign that they are spreading or causing great danger.

In addition, Indian scientists are also focusing on understanding the cause of the sudden increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in India, especially the first variant discovered in this country called B. .1.617.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has so far not declared this variant as "worrying" as it did with the strain detected in the UK, Brazil and South Africa.

However, on April 27, WHO said that its initial image based on genetic sequencing shows that B.1.617 has a higher rate of reproduction than other races circulating in India - a country in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, the health system collapsing. dumping, lack of medicine, oxygen and severe hospital bed.
