Identified for the first time in South Africa, a new variant of COVID – 19, a micron, was concerned by scientists and government leaders regarding its rapid evolution and the scarcity of data.
Second to the World Organization for Sade (WHO), or the previous number of peak mutations, could impact the trajectory of the pandemic. Alm disso, a agncia affirms that there is a higher risk of reinfection than other variants.
A new strain was also detected in other countries such as the United Kingdom, Israel, Holland, Hong Kong, Belgium and Brazil, as two cases identified in So Paulo first.
According to scientists and specialists, I still have no definitive data on the micron cliffs and nem is clear or the size of the ameaa that the new strain represents.
Although there are still no definitive data, or that it is known at present about micron that it is a new strain that has a genetic “constellation” incomum, com close to 50 mutaes that , theoretically, to help you get more quickly.
Although it is classified by the Sade World Organization as a worrying variant, the agency also affirms that there is a higher risk of reinfection than other variants.
Contudo, it is not yet known whether it is transmissive to a micron variant, but it is a mais branda or a more serious strain. Also, it is not possible to measure how the immunity built up by means of vaccines, reinforces and high levels of Covid will reagir nova mutao.
What are the symptoms of the micron variant?
It is still not known what specific symptoms a new strain may cause. Specialists say that I still go a long way to determine whether the micron variant causes more serious or less serious symptoms.
According to the doctor who alerted you about the micron variant, at this time the mutation caused mild symptoms.
In conversation with the British journal The Telegraph, Angelique Coetzee, president of the Medical Association of Africa do Sul, reported that your symptoms, despite incomes, were mild as much as she had treated before.
Second to the doctor, the symptoms of micron reported by patients foram hairs:
- Muscular Dores
- “Coceira na throat” or sensation of “throat pulling”
- Low fever (in few cases)
- Dry cough (few cases).
“Or that we have to worry now that, when more people are not vaccinated, they are infected with a new variant, and they are not vaccinated, we will see many people as a serious doena form”, explained Angelique Coetzee.
Can atuais cows protect against microns?
As explained by Giovanna Sapienza, infectologist at the Meni Centro de Preveno, at this moment it is not known to respond to this variant .
“As genetic alterations suggest that she may be more transmissive and have a greater immunological escape, or a higher risk of reinfection and vaccine failure,” he explains to an infectologist.
However, at this time, I have not given enough data to affirm these allegations, although the diagnostic tests of PCR atuais of SARS-CoV-2 continue to detect this variant.
H uma series of studies in progress endorsing this variant and WHO will communicate the new uncovered to the Member States in the public year, as necessary.
