How the new subtype of the Delta coronavirus differs from the usual COVID-19



It is a subvariant of AY.4.2, which manifests itself differently from the main strain. During the study, 100,112 PCR tests for coronavirus taken from October 19 to November 5 of this year were checked. The “delta” -strain, both matrix and its branches, were found in 841 tests, 12% of which fell on subvariant AY.4.2.

But it was remarkable for scientists that only 33% of those infected with AY.4.2 had the standard symptoms of covid – persistent cough, loss or change of smell, taste, fever, etc.

According to the researchers, this is an important discovery that will help to better understand the nature of the virus. But it is also dangerous – when there are no obvious symptoms, a person may not suspect that they are sick and be a carrier of the virus.
