the delta is followed by the lambda version

The rate of spread is higher than at any of the previous stages, in just a week the number of cases has doubled. This is how France is experiencing the arrival of the delta strain. More than 80 percent of infections occur in Indian mutation… To officially admit that only the Fifth Republic has so far decided to do this in the fourth wave.

“At the moment, the whole world is experiencing a rise in the incidence, coronavirus-related “delta” or Indian strain. It is “delta” that is characterized by greater infectiousness, 2-2.5 times the number of people who come into contact with the same source of infection, say, in the fall of last year, get sick from this infection. Therefore, there is a rise in almost 120 countries around the world due to the delta variant of the coronavirus, “explains Alexander Gorelov, deputy director for research at the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor.

Great Britain, separated from France by a fifty-kilometer English Channel, has so far refrained from recognizing a new stage of the pandemic, although the situation there is much worse than that of its neighbors. 50 thousand cases a day, and, according to forecasts of epidemiologists, the figure will grow. And with it, the curve of the entire world statistics of the infected is creeping up inexorably. Countries that coped well with the previous wave of the pandemic through vaccination are showing a steady increase, but at the same time, there is no talk of an increase in mortality. Last year, in the peak months, the death rate in the UK reached 17 percent, now it does not exceed one tenth.

“From this wave both in France, and in Great Britain, and in the same United States of America, it is clear that the vaccine protects against deaths. And this, generally speaking, is very important data. At the same time, the results have already been analyzed in the United States. of this very wave that is now going on with us, and there it was described by the director of the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta as an “epidemic of the unvaccinated,” notes Sergei Netyosov, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Head of the Laboratory of Biotechnology and Virology and Professor Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Novosibirsk State University.

A number of scientific studies around the world confirm that virus mutations primarily occur in a non-immune organism. That is, in the one that has not received the vaccine. And the more people choose to abandon the prevention of coronavirus by a painless injection, the more chances that new strains will not be long in coming. And the Greek letters in the alphabet may not be enough for them. And while the Indian delta is rampant in the world, the World Health Organization is closely monitoring the South American lambda.

“The lambda variant was listed by WHO on the list of interest in June. It was first reported in Peru in December 2020. The strain is circulating in America and has already been found in more than thirty countries – we are tracking these variants. and look at how infectious they are, whether there are changes in how hard they are tolerated, how effective restrictive measures are against them, vaccinations, how well they are diagnosed, “explained epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove, representative of the WHO response working group on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with the elderly and people suffering from severe chronic diseases, the WHO classified pregnant women over 35 years of age as the risk groups especially susceptible to severe covid. Virus is capable of causing fatal harm not only to the health of the mother, but also to provoke the death of an unborn child. Updated recommendations from the World Health Organization indicate the need to vaccinate not only pregnant women, but also lactating women.

“Even for the first trimester of pregnancy, there is no danger here – the fact that this infection can be more difficult for them is definitely, and therefore they need protection with vaccines. The same is for breastfeeding mothers, the likelihood of some adverse effect vaccines of modern, anti-coronavirus vaccines for a child who is being fed – there is no such thing, “says Anatoly Alshtein, virologist, professor at the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Academician NF Gamalei.

More than a billion people worldwide have already received a full vaccination with the two components of the drug, and at the same time, this is not enough to stop the pandemic. After all, the coronavirus also does not wait – daily adding hundreds of thousands of new cases to the total number of cases.
