Omicron’s sub-variant BA.2.12 has been found in most of the samples that were genome-sequenced in the capital Delhi and this could be one of the reasons behind the recent rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the city. It is being told that this variant is very contagious and spreads rapidly.

At the same time, information has been received that another sub-variant BA.2.12.1 of Omicron has also been found in the samples of Delhi. However, this has not been officially confirmed. It is being told that this is the new form behind the increase in the cases of corona in America in recent times.

An official source said that the new sub-variants BA.2.12 were found in 52 per cent of the samples and BA.2.10 in 11 per cent of the samples and were found in more than 60 per cent of the total samples taken in Delhi recently. Genome sequencing of over 300 samples has been done in Delhi in the first fortnight this month. The official said that almost all these variants of the virus have been found in the samples whose genome sequencing has been done in neighboring districts of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana also.

More than 950 cases of Kovid-19 have been reported in Delhi on Thursday. Meanwhile, new cases of corona are increasing continuously in the country. In the last 24 hours, 2,451 new cases of corona have been reported. There were 2,067 new cases on Thursday while 1,247 new cases were reported on 19 April. PLC &GT
