The Coronavirus variation (Covid-19) of Delta Plus, which was labeled by the central government as a "concern variety," has caused anxiety amongst the inhabitants of the country since it is more transmissible and resistant to some vaccines. 

However, Dr. Randeep Guleria, director of AIIMS, maintained “we’ll be safe against any of the emerging variants,” news agency ANI reported.

“There isn’t much data on the Delta Plus variant to suggest it’s more infectious, causing more deaths, or has developed a significant immune escape mechanism,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.

Guleria also said that additional data on "dose mixing" are necessary, as research has shown that it can be effective. The AIIMS director, however, clarified that more data is needed before recommending that Covid-19 vaccine doses be mixed.

“Delta Plus is having greater affinity to mucosal lining in the lungs, higher compared to other variants, but if it causes damage or not is not clear yet,” he told PTI.

According to news agency PTI, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization  (NTAGI) chairman Dr. NK Arora recently stated that the Delta Plus version of Covid-19 has a stronger affinity for lung issues, however this does not imply that it may cause severe disease or has a higher transmissibility. 

According to WHO, the more a virus infects a population, the more likely it is to mutate. The public health ministry went on to say that when an infection mutates, it multiplies rapidly and has more opportunities for mutation.
