In the last two weeks it already confirmed three new strain of corona virus in the three countries, namely strains United kingdom, South Africa and Nigeria.
On last Friday dated December 25, a new variant virus covid-19 has reached Japan. The spread of this new variant was officially announced by the Japanese Prime Minister mentioned that there are already 5 new cases that are characterized by infectiousness of a higher a when in do tracking derived from the passenger aircraft of British origin.
The rapid spread of a new strain this causes in a short time spread has reached Belgium, Iceland, Italy, Denmark and the Netherlands, Australia, Singapore and Japan.
The discovery of the three train a new this is very worrying in the middle of a world effort to start a program of mass vaccination to control the pandemic because the virus is suspected to power tularnya 70% higher when compared with a strain of corona virus which is there.
The alleged existence of a new strain of the corona virus had been predicted previously given the nature of the virus can change and mutate at any time if the environmental conditions support.
Although with the invention of the three strains of the corona virus has not been shown that this variant is more deadly, but in the future can be only the direction of the mutation changed not only produce a strain that has the infectiousness is high, but also more deadly.
According to the note stain this new reported found in the Uk with the name VUI-202012/01 the mutation detected in September 2020 and then in the southeastern region of the United precisely in the county of Kent, London.
From the results of the research, the Uk authorities indicate that this new strain began to dominate cases of transmission in some regions in the Uk very quickly.
Although this new strain is not more deadly but that is feared is the power tularnya higher compared with a strain of corona virus which is there which will certainly contribute to an increase in the number of infected people.
The world is very concerned with the presence of a new strain of the corona virus so that some countries such as America, Japan and some European countries have already banned flights from the Uk entering his homeland.
Until now, this symptoms are caused by new strains is the same with the symptoms of strains origin that is body temperature high, dry cough of a sustainable and disruption of the senses of taste and smell.
The new Strain found in South Africa according to experts is the result of mutations more Strain of English called strain 501.V2. The same is the case with the new strain found in the Uk strain found in South Africa this power of infection and transmission is faster.
Suspected that this new strain also has contributed to a surge of cases of corona in South Africa that has infected nearly 1 million people.
The third Strain found in Nigeria according to experts have a line of different mutations with strains of English and South African strain. Strain Nigeria called P681H this has an infectiousness which is faster than strains of the Uk and South Africa.
The emergence of a new strain of corona virus indeed need to be anticipated and watch out for because it does not close the possibility of considering of its nature will arise variant a new variant which would further complicate the control of the corona virus.
The new Strain will not only contribute to the increase in the number of infected people but also difficult to detect it early.
Detection through a rapid test and PCR for this perceived quite effective and helps to detect and control the spread of corona virus, the future can be only a method of early detection these should be modified so that it can accurately detect the presence of strain a new strain.
Another concern that arises is the type of vaccine that has been developed and will start to use it less provide protection against this new strain.
Three vaccine manufacturers whose products began to be used, namely BioNTech SE, AstraZeneca Plc and CureVac NV stated that a new strain of corona virus is not going to affect the level of protection of the vaccine produced.
However if this mutation continues and more and more variants of corona virus that appears then to the front of the vaccine corona that is produced must be modified again to provide protection maximum against the strain of this new strain. This is often done on the flu vaccine the virus mutates so fast that it requires the modification of the vaccine that there is.
The discovery of a new variant covid-19 in Japan and Singapore indicate below ketibaannya in Indonesia only time will tell if screening at a point of entry into Indonesia is not tightened. Indonesia is expected to be more ready to anticipate the arrival of this new strain so that it can control it properly.
