In India, found the second mutation COVID-19: the first becomes dominant around the world

The new mutation is called delta plus. The Ministry of Health does not yet classify it as a mutation,

of concern. It is named "Delta Plus" because it uses eight spike protein mutations, while the typical "Delta Virus" only uses six.

More than 20 cases of infection with the new mutation have been identified.

State government officials said more samples of the virus have been sent for genome sequencing, with plans to find out if the new variant is dominant.

To contain the spread of the coronavirus, authorities have created special zones and sealed areas where a new variant of the coronavirus was discovered.

NDTV quoted the head of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Randeep Guleria, as saying the strain could cause concern in the future if not studied.
