One good news on the Corona front is that the more contagious type found in Britain has been almost controlled in India. So far 145 cases have been reported but in all cases, the patient has been kept in isolation, thereby avoiding the risk of spreading to others.
Although the type has been known in the UK since mid-September, the government has started investigating travelers coming from Britain for the past one month. Those who had arrived earlier were also investigated. Genome sequencing of those samples coming from Britain, which were coming out of Corona infected, has been done and thousands of samples have been sequenced so far. The new type has been confirmed in just 145 cases. All these are being treated. Tight monitoring of people coming from UK and other countries at airports, ports etc. is going on.
