Mumbai, November 29: The new type of corona, Omicron, found in South Africa, has once again raised concerns. Omicron infection continues to spread to other countries. Experts claim that this type may be more contagious than the Delta type responsible for the second wave in India. The new form of corona virus B.1.1.529 (Omicron) has become a new problem facing the world. The WHO has expressed concern about this and listed it as a “variant of concern”. Experts around the world claim that monoclonal antibody therapy has no effect on hazardous forms such as Omicron. Many new things have come to light about the strengths and characteristics of this type.
How dangerous is the Omicron type? (How much contagious Omicron variant)
Other countries, including South Africa, have been described as six times more powerful than the delta type, according to preliminary analysis of Omicron infection. Delta is the same type that wreaked havoc in India in the second wave of Corona. This type can also weaken the immune system. According to a New York Times report, Omicron is more contagious than its predecessors and can also inactivate the immune response caused by vaccination or a natural infection.
Why was the South African variant named Omicron? What does this have to do with China?
According to experts, the most mutant mutants of the virus so far have been found in Omicron. Never before have so many mutations been observed in a single virus. That’s why scientists are worried about this new type. Scientists say Omicron is genetically different from previous beta and delta types, but it is not yet known whether these genetic mutations make it more dangerous.
Monoclonal neutralizing antibody therapy (Omicron variant vs Delta variant)
Monoclonal antibody therapy has been shown to have an effect on the more contagious delta type in the early stages of infection. However, this therapy did not appear to have any effect on the Delta Plus type. Omicron is now the second type after Delta Plus, which is not affected by monoclonal antibody treatment.

Omicron infection is found in this country
The dangerous omicron type found in South Africa has so far spread to many countries. New cases were reported Saturday in Germany, Italy, Belgium, Israel and Hong Kong. In Britain, too, the government has taken action against masks, social distance and testing after two cases of Omicron came to light.
