New coronavirus variant ‘IHU’ identified in France: Everything we know so far
Amid the worldwide outbreak of Omicron, a new coronavirus variant known as ‘IHU’ has emerged in France. At the IHU Mediterranee Infection University, the B.1.640.2 variant was discovered. It is thought to have 46 mutations, according to researchers. This COVID-19 variant has more mutations than the Omicron variant. Cameroon, an African country, has been linked to the new variant. At least 12 cases of this variation have been reported in France.
Where was IHU detected?
In the Marseille area, at least 12 persons have been identified infected with IHU, with reports claiming that some of them have been hospitalised. Travel to the African country of Cameroon has been connected to the cases. The first incidence was discovered in an adult from a tiny hamlet in southeastern France, according to the researchers. In an RT-PCR test done at a private medical biology laboratory, he was diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2. The individual had experienced moderate respiratory symptoms the day before diagnosis. Respiratory samples taken from seven other COVID-19 positive individuals in the same location later revealed the same mutations.
Today Covid-19 cases in India
The World Health Organization (WHO) has not yet classified the new variant as a variant under study since it has not been discovered in other nations. IHU arrives at a time when the globe is grappling with a significant increase of COVID-19 infections sparked by Omicron, which was initially discovered in South Africa in November. It has now expanded to over a hundred nations, including India. In the previous 24 hours, there have been 58,097 cases with 534 deaths reported in India.
