The delta variant of the corona virus is still causing havoc in the world. This variant killed millions of people in the second wave of corona in India. Even today this delta variant is in the category of a variant of concern by the health authorities. However, after Delta, now the scientists are describing the Lambda variant of the corona virus as most dangerous.
The Ministry of Health of Malaysia has put it in the category of Variant of Concern. The ministry informed that till now more than 30 countries have reported cases of lambda variant. Malaysia’s health ministry tweeted on Monday and reported that Peru was the first to detect the lambda strain, the country with the highest mortality rate in the world.
The Ministry of Health informed that Britain has also reported some cases of lambda variants. Some health officials are concerned that this variant may be more contagious than Delta. The Pan American Health Organization has said that in Peru 82% of the total cases were of the lambda variant between May and June.
In addition, in Chile, 31 percent of the total cases reported in May and June. The World Health Organization has already declared the lambda variant as a Variant of Concern in South America. The World Health Organization said that the lambda is more aggressive than the rest of the mutants. It attacks the antibodies faster.
According to Public Health England, there have been six cases of lambda in the UK so far. According to UK health officials, there is currently no evidence that the variant can cause more severe disease or bypass vaccines.
