The UK, South African, and Brazilian alternatives of COVID-19 have been found
in Sindh, unpolished Minister of Health and Population Welfare, Dr. Azra Fazal
Pechuho, has verified. According to details, Agha Khan University (AKU) Hospital
performed a genomic study on 13 separate samples of Coronavirus.
The UK variant caught in 10 samples while South African and Brazilian individuals
wereidentified in 1 sample each. The original strain of COVID-19 was discovered
in 1 sample. In a video message, Dr. Azra termed the development as alarming
and said that these variants have high transmissibility and fatality rates, adding
that these strains are not vaccine responsive either because efficacies of COVID-19
vaccines against these variants have not determined yet.
She requested the public to avoid crowded spaces, social distancing, and
unnecessary travel and adhere to COVID-19 SOPs otherwise, a humanitarian
disaster comparable to India can explode in the province as well.
