New Corona symptoms coming from the new strain in the second wave- The second wave of coronavirus in India has intensified. On Tuesday, 1.15 lakh new cases have been reported. This is more than the peak of the first wave. The peak of the first wave was formed on September 17, when around 97 thousand cases were reported. In comparison, in the second wave, 1.03 lakh cases have been reported on April 4 and now 1.15 lakh cases have been reported on April 6. Furthermore, new strains of coronaviruses are becoming active and new symptoms are also emerging. Now stomachache, vomiting, joint pain, weakness, loss of appetite are also considered as symptoms of coronavirus.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), different people are experiencing different symptoms. Most people are suffering from mild to moderate illness and are recovering without being admitted to the hospital. Usually, these symptoms are seen 5-6 days after the person is infected with the virus. However, in some cases, these symptoms have also been reported up to 14 days.
Why is corona cases gaining momentum?
Dr. Gagandeep Kang, Professor at Christian Medical College, Vellore, says that every virus is mutated and new variants emerge. This is also happening in the coronavirus. Some strains, such as the UK and Brazil, are severe and tend to spread rapidly.
According to the Government of India, at this time dangerous variants of Corona have been found in 18 states of the country. These include the double mutant strain found in Maharashtra. In the cases that have been reported in Maharashtra, there have been two changes in the virus. This has increased its transmission capacity.
Experts also say that there has been a change in the behaviour of people. They feel that coronavirus is no longer dangerous, hence the use of masks, social distancing and sanitiser has decreased. It also has an important contribution to the introduction of new cases of viruses.
What kind of new symptoms has appeared?
According to the study done in India regarding new cases, the symptoms are also changing due to changing strains. Now not just fever, fatigue or dry cough, taste and smell are the symptoms of the corona. According to a media report, doctors in Gujarat have also noticed new symptoms.
According to this report, the variants of Brazil and Kent are more powerful and due to these, new types of symptoms are coming out. They are also attacking major organs. According to research conducted in hospitals in India, new symptoms have emerged in patients found positive for the virus.
New symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and cold as well as muscle pain, gastrointestinal complications, weakness, and decreased appetite. The doctor is getting coronavirus positive even if the doctor is getting the test done even though there are no common symptoms like fever and cough. Earlier in the UK and other European countries, the second and third wave of infections showed symptoms, unusual signs other than fever or cough.
According to a study in China, conjunctivitis is also a symptom of Kovid-19 infection. New strain can cause redness, swelling, and watery eyes. According to a report published in the International Journal of Audiology last week, the infection is making hearing loss even weaker. According to the study, 7.6% of affected people have hearing loss.
Excessive weakness and fatigue are also considered to be early signs of corona infection. This can be caused by cytokines, which are formed in the immune system as a reaction to any kind of infection in the body. When your body fights with infection, you will feel that someone has pulled the entire energy of your body.
What are the gastrointestinal symptoms?
Doctors say that many types of gastrointestinal problems are also coming up. Their number has increased compared to earlier. Earlier these symptoms were not seen, but now in most cases, these corona symptoms are seen. Doctors say that the new strains of the virus are affecting the digestive system and are causing symptoms of diarrhoea, colic, nausea and vomiting.
As a load of virus increases in the body, it also causes damage to other organs. In such a situation, doctors are advised not to be negligent. Do the test as soon as you see any symptoms and stop the virus from increasing by treating it in time.
Is infection becoming more deadly?
Most new cases do not have corona symptoms. Some have mild to moderate symptoms. But the way the virus is changing, the severity of infection is also coming to the fore. For people who have some kind of serious illness, these infections can prove to be fatal and this is why there is a rush in hospitals. There is no place for new patients in hospitals in major cities of states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh.
Is there any benefit to vaccination?
Yes It has many advantages. Vaccine experts claim that Corona’s new strains may dodge the antibodies made from both vaccines available in India (covaxin and covidshield). But even then the possibility of infection cannot be ruled out. If the vaccine is in place, it can prevent serious infections and deaths.
For this reason, the government has also started vaccination of all people in the age group of 45 years from April 1. Prior to this, 90% of the deaths due to corona infection were in this age group. At the same time, doctors also say that people should not reduce the use of social distancing, mask and sanitiser, whether the vaccine is installed or not.
