In the second wave of Corona, the fear of more than half a dozen mutants in Purvanchal, which the scientists of BHU had expressed, turned out to be correct. There have been reports of not one or two but seven mutants in Purvanchal. In this too the double mutant is more effective. Apart from this, the beta variant found in South Africa is also active here.
By the team of BHU’s Zoology Department, Professor Dnyaneshwar Choubey and IMS BHU team, 130 samples from five districts (Varanasi, Mirzapur, Sonbhadra, Chandauli, Ghazipur) including Varanasi were sent to CCMB Hyderabad for examination, so that it can be ascertained. To know how many types of mutants were effective in the second wave of corona not only in Varanasi but also in the surrounding districts. Now the result which has come after testing the sample from CCMB Hyderabad.
According to him, information about not one, but seven types of mutants has been found in the surrounding districts including Banaras. According to Professor Royana Singh, Head of IMS BHU MRU Lab, VOC (Variant of Concern) B1.617, called double mutant, has been reported to be more effective in the second wave.

According to Dr Rakesh Singh, Consultant, CCMB Hyderabad, delta mutant 1.617.2 was the highest in the study at most places. He said that out of 130 samples tested, information about delta mutants has been found in 36 percent. Other mutants such as B1.351, first found in South Africa, have also been found in the region.
A sample of 130 people was taken in April
Professor Dnyaneshwar Choubey of BHU Zoology Department said that 130 samples of corona were taken from Varanasi and adjoining districts from BHU’s MRU lab in April 2021 itself. He was sent to CCMB Hyderabad for investigation. Seven different types of mutants have been reported in this region. Professor Choubey said that this study confirmed that the most widespread corona virus in the country is mutant. Also, it is important for us to keep an eye on other emerging forms of this virus in the country so that it can be stopped.
