Prime News, Karnataka, Health, Disease, Mysuru, June 24:- The new variant of the coronavirus, Delta Plus, can spread very fast and as such, we have to be careful, said Mysuru District Health Officer Dr K H Prasad here on Wednesday (June 23).
He said, “We have one case in Mysuru, but there is nothing to worry about. A Covid-19 patient who underwent a test on May 2 was detected with Delta Plus variant on May 4. He was kept under isolation and given treatment, and got cured. His primary and secondary contacts did not complain of any infection. All his family members are also safe.”
Dr Prasad said, “To keep track of coronavirus variants, we are sending 40 samples to Bengaluru for further tests. Of the 40 samples, one case turned out to be Delta Plus. We can avoid its spread if we can follow all the guidelines strictly.” (MR/KS)
