The NCDC report on Covid variant AY.4 in India is cause for concern

New Delhi: The National Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s genome sequencing report, which discovered Delta variant sub-lineage cases in India, has sparked concern.

According to the NCDC report, seven cases of new Covid variant AY.4, a sub-lineage of the Delta variant, were detected in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore, while it was detected in 1% of Maharashtra samples collected last month.
According to the NCDC report, this sub-lineage AY.4 was responsible for the increase in Covid cases in Indore in September.
The new variant AY.4.2 has sparked concern in Europe, with health experts claiming that it is more transmissible than the Delta variant. However, they claim that this variant has been discovered in very small numbers.

In India, 17 samples of the AY.4.2 variant of the Covid-19 virus have been identified.
According to an NCDC official, preliminary investigations have revealed that the AY 4.2 has not increased the case ratio in India, but it is present here. Apart from AY.4.2, AY.33 and AY.4.1 are also present in India and are currently in use.
