Health experts have warned of a third wave of epidemics after the case of new varieties of corona virus appeared in 10 provinces of Canada. Let us tell you that the experts are particularly concerned about the three new varieties of Corona virus, the South African variant, the British variant and the Brazilian variant.
New varieties of corona virus increase Canada’s difficulty
On Saturday, officials announced that the British B.1.1.7 variant has been detected in 10 provinces of Canada. The British variant is known to be more contagious and is also referred to as a Kent variant. The Kent variant has also been traced to about 60 countries including India. In addition, Canada has so far registered 28 cases of South African B.1.351 variant. The Xinhua News Agency reported that a case of Brazilian P.1 strain has also surfaced.
Officials are more cautious after the case in 10 provinces
Despite the decrease in the spread of Kovid-19, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, is urging the provinces and people to strictly follow health measures, given the presence of these variants. He said, “Therefore we need to maintain strict vigilance on health measures and habits of people. This will help in the prevention of these variants and control the epidemic from becoming very difficult.”
Several experts, including Britain’s Genetic Surveillance Program chief Sharon Peacock, have expressed concerns that the B.1.1.7 variant of the corona virus may weaken the protection from the current Kovid-19 vaccine. The B.1.1.7 variant was first discovered in the Kent area of Britain. B.1.1.7 variant has been found positive in dozens of Indian Corona virus investigations.
India is not much of a threat – vaccines are effective
Research has shown that India Biotech’s Covacine and AstraZeneca’s vaccine can have an effect against the new UK variant. Both vaccines have been approved in India and vaccination is also going on. This means that India is probably safe from the concern of the Varieties and the threat of the third wave of the Kovid-19 epidemic. There have been more than 8 lakh 23 thousand cases of corona virus infection in Canada and more than 21 thousand people have died.
