· Sixty per cent samples of the patients infected with Covid-19 from Haryana sent to Central labs for genome sequencing in February, March and April have been found positive for the UK mutant variants.
· In the samples taken during the month of March, 77 per cent of the samples were found positive for the UK mutation variants.
· While none of the samples sent to the CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB), a part of the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomic Consortia (INSACOG), in December 2020 and January this year showed any mutant variant, 310 samples of February, March and April have so far been found positive for the UK variants.
· The variant has largely been detected in samples from Panchkula, Ambala, Kurukshetra, Panipat, Karnal, Gurugram, Faridabad, Sirsa and Hisar, the districts which incidentally have observed an unprecedented surge in recent days.
· The virus mutant 501Y.VI, SARS-CoV-2 variant VOC 202012/01 (variant of concern year 2020-month 12 variant 01) or B.1.1.7 was first detected in the UK and is associated with increased transmissibility.
The Centre had recently told the states to send randomly picked samples to the INSACOG labs for genome sequencing to know about the mutant variants active in various states.
