The coronavirus (Covid-19), whose variants have recently been mentioned by name, has been in our lives for about two years. A rote warning has been issued from the United States for the virus, which has cost millions of lives. Here are the results of what has been described as a ‘nightmare scenario’ by scientific circles…

The world’s fight against the coronavirus, which first appeared in Wuhan, China, in the last days of 2019, continues at full speed. the virus, which has infected more than 225 million people, has cost about 5 million lives.

The coronavirus (Covid-19), which has been in our lives for about 2 years, has recently been on the agenda with variants. With the recently appeared variants, the virus is again experiencing nightmares in many regions, so to speak.

The number of cases is rising dramatically in many countries, especially due to the Delta variant. With the pandemic, the scientific world devoted almost all its time to defeating the virus.

In order for us to defeat the coronavirus and its variants, we need to decipher all the mysteries of the virus. Thanks to these studies, we are getting to know the virus better every day.


A new one has been added to the studies in question. In a short time, the work that falls like a bomb on the agenda of the scientific world, so to speak, has ramifications that disrupt memorization.

According to a report in the British Daily Mail, scientists have managed to determine the change that the virus is experiencing as new variants appear. Accordingly, the virus is evolving ‘to spread better in the air’.


The spread of a virus from the air is described as a ‘nightmare scenario’ by scientific circles. Because if any virus has the capacity to be transmitted by air, this seriously increases the rate of contagiousness.

Stating that a similar situation applies to the coronavirus that continues to evolve, the team compared the original coronavirus (Wuhan version) and the Alpha variant that triggered the devastating second wave in January in the UK and reached terrible results.

According to researchers from the University of Maryland, people infected with the Alpha variant spread the virus through the air 100 times more often than those who caught the original Wuhan species.

Lead author Dr Don Milton, who made the remarks on behalf of the team, underlined that the findings showed that the variants ‘continue to get better at traveling in the air’.


The study, based on monitoring the air inhaled by infected volunteers through a machine, revealed that fabric and surgical masks can halve the amount of the virus inhaled by an infected person.

Researchers have not yet signed up to this study for Delta. But for Delta, which has been scientifically proven to be more contagious, the results will not change either.


The Delta variant, which was first seen in India, is cited as the number one reason for the global case increase. Experts have been warning for some time that people with double vaccinations may also get Delta.

Because while getting vaccinated gives you twice as much protection, you can still get the virus and even infect your environment. The latest report from the UK indicates that the symptoms of coronavirus have changed due to the appearance of different symptoms in people with variants and vaccines.


According to the British newspaper Mirror, runny nose , headache , sneezing , sore throat and loss of smell are among the 5 most common symptoms of the last period, and experts emphasize that people with these symptoms should definitely get tested vaccinated or not.


But experts emphasize that this is only the 5 most common symptoms. The complete list of symptoms observed in people suffering from Mu and Delta variants is as follows…

  1. High fever
  2. Tremor
  3. Persistent cough
  4. Loss or change of smell
  5. Loss or change of taste
