The Target of a New Coronavirus Mutation is Known
Coronavirus mutates to spread more efficiently and quickly through the air. This was reported by The New York Times, citing a study by the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Scientists compared the alpha and delta variants with previous SARS-CoV-2 strains and concluded that the virus is evolving and adapting for better airborne transmission.
Experts believe it spreads through large droplets that quickly descend to the floor. The smaller ones, experts believe, travel long distances and settle right in the lungs, where SARS-CoV-2 is most dangerous.
A new study has confirmed that the coronavirus changes so that it spreads better. According to scientists, the discovery suggests the need for improved masks for use during mass events.
The delta strain of coronavirus first discovered in India is found worldwide. Among its main features is a shorter incubation period than previous varieties of the pathogen. In addition, it causes additional symptoms in patients, such as gastrointestinal disorders.
