However, in some cases these symptoms persist for up to 14 days.

Why are Corona cases increasing so fast?

A professor at the Christian Medical College in Vellore, Dr. According to Gagandeep Kang, every virus mutates and comes up with new variants. This is also happening in coronaviruses. Some strains like UK and Brazil are severe and spread quickly.

According to the Government of India, dangerous variants of the Corona have been found in 18 states of the country at this time. It also includes double mutant strains found in Maharashtra. In the cases that have come up in Maharashtra, the virus has changed in two places. This has increased its transmission capacity.

According to experts, people's behavior has also changed. They feel that coronavirus is no longer dangerous, so the use of masks, social distinguishing and sanitizers has decreased. It is an important contributor to new cases of the virus.

How did the new feature come up?

According to the study, 7.6% of infected people's hearing is affected.

Excessive weakness and fatigue are considered to be the early symptoms of coronary infection. It can be caused by cytokines, which appear in the immune system as a reaction to any type of infection in the body. When your body fights the infection you will feel that someone has taken away all the energy from your body.

What is a gastrointestinal symptom?

According to doctors, many types of gastrointestinal problems are also occurring. Its number is higher than before.

Is the infection becoming more deadly?

Hospitals in major cities like Maharashtra, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh do not have space for new patients.

Is there any benefit to vaccination?

Yes. It has many advantages. Vaccine experts claim that a new strain of corona could infect an antibody made from both vaccines (covacin and covishield) available in India. But even then the possibility of infection cannot be ruled out. If the vaccine is given, it will prevent the infection from reaching a serious stage and prevent death.

Because of this, the government has also started vaccinating all people in the age group of 45 years from April 1. Previously, 90% of deaths due to corona infections were in this age group. While doctors also say that, whether vaccinated or not, people should not underestimate the use of social distants, masks and sanitizers.
