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.
