Why the Delta Plus Variant is the worst till date

The second wave of COVID-19 was a tragedy for many. The cases have dropped and that feels temporarily relieving. But as we have started easing restrictions, the Delta Plus variant (a mutated version of Delta variant) of the virus has emerged, and poses a great threat to us. 

Why is this concerning?

The Delta Plus variant is a super-spreader as it is 60% more contagious than the previous variants. The IMCR (Indian Council of Medical Research) states that the transmission capacity of the variant has increased drastically which means that it will spread faster from person to person. 

Epidemiologists believe that the Delta plus variant is the most dangerous one so far. It affects the lungs of the patient. With the third wave approaching, we must take as much precautions as possible. 

But how will I know if I have the Delta Plus variant

You cannot say for sure on your own if you are the victim of this variant, only a proper testing can confirm that. But top virologists have advised to take immediate consultation with your doctor and get yourself tested if you notice the symptoms mentioned below.

  • Headache
  • Chest pain
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Skin rash
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Diarrhoea
  • Discolouration of fingers and toes.
  • Loss of appetite
  • Stomach ache
  • Nausea

But the must be a way to prevent this right?

Of course there is! While a tiny virus that has travelled the world may be difficult to escape, it’s not impossible to prevent it either. Many have done it since over a year, you can do it too. Here are some ways in which you can prevent the virus from entering you.
