The Medical Minister said that although the Kappa form is less lethal than the Delta form. 28 new cases of corona virus infection were reported in Rajasthan on Tuesday. There are 613 under-treatment patients in the state.
Dr. Raghu Sharma said that the Kappa variant is less lethal than the Delta variant. He has appealed to the people to follow the covid appropriate behavior. Till July 13, more than 9.53 lakh cases of corona have been reported in Rajasthan. On Tuesday, 28 patients have been found here in the last 24 hours.

The Kappa variant of Corona (b.1.167.1) was first detected in India in October 2020. It is a double mutant strain of coronavirus. Cases of the kappa variant are reported to be increasing rapidly in Brazil and South Africa. Given its complex nature, the WHO has classified it as a “variant of interest”.
Research suggests that the kappa variant has the ability to overcome the immunity created by both natural infection and vaccine. This is the reason why experts are considering this variant to be extremely contagious and dangerous.
