Doctors reveal how dangerous the Delta variant of COVID is – the main culprit behind India’s second wave

Published on

A new variant of the coronavirus provokes hearing impairment and the appearance of blood clots, doctors found.

In India, doctors told about the danger of the Delta variant of COVID-19.

The variant of the coronavirus provokes symptoms that usually do not occur with COVID-19. It is this strain that caused a devastating epidemic in India – it is more infectious than others.

“Last year, we thought we had learned about our new enemy, but it changed. This virus has become so, so unpredictable,” says Abdul Ghafur, an infectious disease physician from the Apollo Hospital.

Six doctors treating COVID patients in India have confirmed that their patients experience hearing impairment, severe stomach upset and blood clots leading to gangrene, as well as other symptoms not usually seen in Covid patients.

Some patients also develop microthrombi or small blood clots so severe that they kill the affected tissue and develop gangrene.

“I saw three-to-four cases the whole of last year, and now it’s one patient a week,” says Ganesh Manudhane, a Mumbai-based cardiologist.

In particular, two patients required toe and foot amputations.

Doctors also identify cases of blood clots forming in the blood vessels supplying the intestines, causing patients to experience abdominal pain.

“The most alarming aspect of the current epidemic in India is the speed at which the virus is spreading, including among children,” concluded pediatrician Chetan Mundada.

Earlier, they found out why some people have no symptoms of COVID-19. Scientists associate the trend towards a “hidden” course of coronavirus infection with genetics. 

This is a gene responsible for the perception of a virus.

“New vaccines have to prepared with new variants in mind,” says Ghafur.

“We can’t get ahead of the virus, but at least we can least keep up with it.”
