With the rapid spread of the dangerous type of corona Omega Crown, the British corona alert level has been raised from level three to level 3.
The spread of corona in the UK has accelerated again, with 48,854 new cases confirmed in the past 24 hours.
According to reports, another 52 people have died in the past 24 hours. In addition, the United Kingdom has reported 1,239 Omi Cron cases, bringing the total number of Omi Cron cases to 3,137.
According to media reports, most cases occurred in England.
The corona alarm level has been raised to level three
On the other hand, after the spread of Omi Kron, the UK raised the corona alert level from level three to level 4.
According to the news agency, a coronavirus alert level of 4 means that the spread of the epidemic is very high and the pressure on healthcare services is very high.
The British government stated that based on preliminary evidence, the Omega Crown variant is expanding faster than Delta, and the protection of the Corona vaccine by the Omi Crown variant is weakening.
Why is Omi Kroon dangerous?
It is said that it is more dangerous than its predecessor, the coronavirus variant, because it has the potential to spread quickly and the vaccine will be less effective.
South African health officials said that this new variant has many changes that scientists did not anticipate. Compared with the original coronavirus, this variant has about 50 mutations, 30 of which are located in the spike protein.
Vaccines developed so far have been attacking the spike protein of the virus in order to destroy the virus before it enters the human cell. With so many changes in the spike protein, available vaccines can reduce the impact of the virus by as much as 40%.
Careful observation revealed that the receptor binding domain part of this variant (the part where the virus first attaches to human cells) has undergone 10 changes, while the original coronavirus is in the devastating Delta variant in India and other parts of the world. In contrast , There are only 2 changes.
