A new mutated strain of the Coronavirus spread in Britain recently, resulting in a huge increase in infections. The officials explained 7 symptoms of the most dangerous new strain.
British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, says that the mutated Coronavirus is 70% more contagious than previous virus strains that struck the United Kingdom.
The government advisory group spent days studying the new and emerging threats of respiratory viruses (NERVTAG) this week to analyze the newly mutated virus.
Johnson says: “There is no evidence that it causes a higher mortality rate, but the risk of transmission speed is more easily, it may be up to 70% more transmissible than the old version of the disease, and the data is still under review.”
While it is not clear exactly why this virus is so contagious, England’s chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, stated that it contains “23 different mutations”.
Professor Whitty confirmed that more than 60% of new cases in London appear to be due to infection with the new virus, which shows how quickly they are moving.
But the big mutation is not the disease’s progression, not the immunity, but rather the ease of transmission; this virus spreads more easily, and therefore more measures are needed to keep it under control.
“We need to adhere to the basics of making sure that direct contact is minimized, and this virus’s ability to spread is minimized, which is why more stringent measures are needed to keep its mutation under control,” the professor says.
Whether a person has the original or mutated coronavirus, they will still suffer from:
1- A persistent cough.
2- Loss of smell.
3- Loss of the sense of taste.
4- High temperature.
5- A persistent cough is classified as a severe cough for more than an hour or three or more coughing episodes in a 24-hour period.
6- While the high temperature is more than 37.8 degrees Celsius.
7- Fatigue and fatigue are also common symptoms of any of the breeds.
