A joint genome sequencing concentrate by researchers of a multidisciplinary research unit at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in Varanasi, and CSIR-Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad, uncovered that seven significant variations of Covid illness unleashed ruin in Varanasi and bordering areas during the second flood of the pandemic.
“We started working on the project in April. Our team, including Dr SP Mishra, Dr Deepa Devdas, Dr Priyonil Basu and Dr Chetan Sahni collected samples from Varanasi city and rural areas of Chandauli, Sonbhadra, Jaunpur and Bhadohi mostly in April. The team at CCMB sequenced these samples and found out that there were at least seven major variants circulating in the region. One hundred thirty samples were sequenced in this study,” said head, multidisciplinary research unit, BHU, professor Royana Singh, who led the team of researchers.
“Among the variants of concern (VoC), the most predominant variant we found in our study was B.1.617. This variant was also reported to be one of the major drivers of the second Covid wave in India,” Prof Singh added.
