New Delhi (SunstarTV Bureau): After the strain of Corona virus spread out in five states, AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria said that the new Indian strains of coronavirus found in Maharashtra could be highly transmissible and dangerous, on Saturday.
According to doctor’s statement, “immunity for coronavirus is a “myth” in the country because at least 80 per cent people need to have antibodies for the whole of the population to be protected”.
He further added that “the new variant can even cause re-infections in people who have developed anti-bodies to the virus.”
The five states including Maharashtra are Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Punjab, have been witnessing a spike in coronavirus numbers over the past week.
Meanwhile, the Centre plans to immunise 3 crore health workers and frontline workers. After that, it will be the turn of 27 crore people who are above the age of 50 years or have co-morbidities.
