In the genomic structure, scientists have found the genome of monkeypox to be seven times larger than that of the corona virus. It has also been found that the first monkeypox infected patient of the country, resident of Kerala, has a South African variant, which is not only less effective than other variants, but its medical treatment is also easy.
A senior scientist of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said, the West African variant has been put in the risk category. Only the South African variant has been confirmed in India so far. According to the team of NIV Pune, its genomic structure is seven times larger than Corona. It has no effect on public health.
does not change form frequently
The scientist said, monkeypox is a DNA virus while corona is an RNA virus. DNA viruses do not change their form frequently. This is the reason why not many variants or clades of monkeypox circulate.
NIV scientist said, India needs to worry. Surveillance must be increased. Test people with symptoms and isolate infected patients.
High level team reaches Kerala
New Delhi. After getting the country’s first monkeypox infected patient, the high level committee of the center reached Kerala to review the district wise situation. During this, the team came to know that people who came in contact with the infected patient were found negative. It is also being asked to increase surveillance at all airports. On the other hand, Tamil Nadu Health Minister Ma Subramaniam said that we have started monitoring the borders with Kerala.
