Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist at Imperial College London, said the recent rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in South Africa was due to the high number of mutations in the spike protein in B.1.1.

Senior British scientist Neil Ferguson has issued a warning saying that people should not assume that the corona will remain a minor disease. People still need to be cautious for many years. Apart from this, while talking about the new variant ‘Omicron’ of Corona, he has said that something will be known about the danger from Omicron only after December. He said that efforts are being made to understand this new variant. Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist at Imperial College London, said that evolution can also help the corona virus spread rapidly.

Virus spread more during hospitalization: Ferguson
By the time people are hospitalized, most of the spread has already happened, Ferguson told the Commons Science and Technology Committee. The virus mutates very rapidly within the respiratory tract and tries to exit into the environment. The virus can kill someone even after 10 days. His remarks came after a response from the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (Nervatag). It revealed that experts last week urged UK ministers to take quick and strong action to limit transmission of the Omicron variant.

Like Alpha and Delta, Omicron can also be dangerous
Ferguson told lawmakers that some viruses have become less dangerous over time but that is not always the case. Two of the most prominent types of Covid-19, alpha and delta variants, each caused more severe disease than their predecessors, he said. He said that it is too early to say whether Omicron is going to be more or less severe than the previous variant, but from what we have seen so far, the Alpha has been more severe than the previous variant.
