Odisha's first case of the Delta Plus variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, described as a "variant of concern" with increased transmissibility, was reported from Deogarh district on Friday, despite the state government's assertion that there is little cause for concern, according to Additional Chief Secretary, Health, PK Mohapatra.
“The infected person did not receive any vaccination when his swab sample was taken for the test and subsequent genome sequencing. He has recovered from the infection,” said Mohapatra.
After genome sequencing of the virus, a 62-year-old man from Deogarh district was identified as one of the country's 48 Delta Plus cases.
Institute of Life Sciences Scientists in Bhubaneswar, found no further examples of the Delta Plus variation where the genome sequencing was done in the second week of May.
Delta plus (B.1.617.2.1/(AY.1), a variation with enhanced transmissibility, is the latest in a lengthy line of novel mutant variants of the Delta strain, with health experts predicting a third wave of the pandemic in the nation.
Dr. Bijay Moahapatra, director of health services, said there was no need to be concerned and that the third wave of the Covid -19 pandemic could be predicted before it reached Odisha. “The effects of the first and the second waves were felt in Delhi and Mumbai first and later in Odisha. So, we can well predict the arrival of the third wave but we have to be cautious and prepared,” he said
