Two basic questions on Covid issues that need attention
1) In India we had SARS-COV2 D614G strain in 2020 and the same in most countries
2) Now we have B.1.1.7 (UK Strain) and B.1.617 (Indian Strain) in India.
1) If someone gets vaccinated, it may cover D614g and B.1.1.7 but they can still contract B.1.617 (research below says that) because vaccine dowsnt provide protection.
2) The testing kits of Rt-PCR and RAT tests were designed to identify d614G. Can they still catch B.1.617? Is that why RTPCR is not able to catch it. Do testing kits need to be updated ?
Why is our Govt not working on these issues with urgency. Can LocalCircles please escalate to Govt.
