Belagavi/ Hubballi: Professor M B Nagamoti, professor of Microbiology at JN Medical College KAHER Belagavi, says it is too early to comment anything on the new Delta Plus variant of the novel Coronavirus.
Patients affected with the new variant were found in some states, including Maharashtra, Kerala and Madhya Pradesh.
It is unclear whether the variant is highly contagious or the most lethal. As of now, we can tell people to stay safe. The research on this variant is very limited and knowledge as well, said Dr Nagamoti.
He stated that the new variant can also be detected using an RT-PCR test, but it is unknown whether it causes similar or additional symptoms in patients affected by the Delta Plus variant.
