India has recorded the second-highest number of cases of any country in the world with more than 15.3 million cases since the pandemic began.

As COVID-19 hanging around the world, thousands of different variant or strains of the virus are also beginning to spread.

The Indian Double Mutant strain also known as B.1.617, carries two mutations — the E484Q and L452R, in the spike protein which could mean the variant is more able to easily attack the body’s immune response.

This could mean vaccines could be less effective, however, studies into this are still underway.

The spike protein is the part of the virus which it uses to invade human cells.

What are the main symptoms of the new Indian Double Mutant covid variant?

As stated by Dr. Balram Bhargava, Director-general of the Indian Council of Medical Research, the only difference with the Indian Covid variant also called Duble Mutant Strain is shortness of breath.

He said the variant is higher among patients this time as a higher requirement of oxygen was found in this wave.

Unlike the other symptoms of Covid, current research paper received from hospitals across India, shows nausea, abdominal pain, hearing impairment, vomiting, diarrhoea, and coughs along with predominant oral and skin manifestations are being seen much more common with the current variant.

A recent study suggests the new Indian Covid variant more easily infects children and young people.

Some experts believe the faster-spreading Covid variants are sending children and young adults to hospital with serious symptoms.

Fatalities remain low, but doctors say the virus is now making the young sicker, some gravely.

However, some scientists are not worried yet, saying the strain’s features look no more dangerous than South Africa, Brazil, and Kent.
