Has been for the past three weeks National Institute of Public Health The next corona virus variant to present challenges in Europe was not a completely new variant of SARS-CoV-2, but was written as a mutated version of the delta variant.
Line Vault, director of the department, said the National Institutes of Public Health now believes we are facing a change.
– The delta variant has been dominating for some time in Norway, Europe and other parts of the world. It seems now, there are a lot of changes in the delta variant, so its subgroups are formed. Now we hope to see a change in which subgroups will eventually dominate the spread of infection, says Volt to Dagbladet and continues:
– But this is a long-term development, so we do not know which subgroup of delta variant will dominate the spread of infection in the future.
Subcommittees in Norway
To date, 27 cases of the Delta Subcommittee have been identified Hey. 4.2, The European Institute for Infectious Disease Control (ECDC) and UK health officials have a list of variations that they closely follow.
In addition, there is a clear increase in the number of cases of delta variation with changes in nail level 484 (E484Q), which is a significant mutation that can affect immunity. The cases are mainly recorded on Viken, but it is not known whether they are related to specific eruptions.
– Currently, we do not record subgroups of delta diversity in Norway with significantly modified characteristics, which we fear will greatly affect the epidemic. But we know from the past that it’s important to follow this, so we still do, says Volt.
Variations and infections
Recently, the infection pressure in Norway has risen sharply, but Volt and the FHI do not believe it is caused by subgroups of delta variation.
– We do not believe that the emergence of subgroups of delta variant is one of the reasons for the increase in infection we now see – it is not possible. This is the original delta variant that dominates the spread of infection in Norway, and we do not believe the new subgroups have affected the situation, nor do we see subgroups with significantly altered characteristics.
