Dr Raman Gangakhedkar, said that Delta plus is a low transmissible strain and if it remains, so then it will not replace the Delta variant, which is important now. On Saturday, the former chief of Indian council of medical research said that there is no sufficient information to certify that Delta plus is spreading rapidly in the country. And he said that more information is to be needed  to comment on its spreading and virulence and probable antibody escape characteristics. 

           Tamil Nadu reported the first death case of Delta plus variant of Covid-19 virus. Nearly 12 states in India like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Punjab, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan, Haryana and Karnataka have reported this variant. Scientist said that, The mutant is also present in the mutants of Africa. This mutation may also be seen with other mutations. The most important mutation among them is  N501y. Two together were able to avoid the vaccine response and produce escape mutants but if K417N  is alone. 

Then it is not so powerful to escape vaccine response. "Dr Raman  Gangakhedhkar said that the mutation alone is not proven to be harmful. Indian council of Medical research said that eight states have been alerted as the new variant has come to surface. Gangakhedhkar says Delta plus is not a fastest spreading strain. To prove there are proper proofs, he added.
