The pandemic has already caused havoc to mankind, but a new incident says that this is not over yet. A new outbreak in the northeastern province of China shows that the symptoms are changing from the original Wuhan outbreak. Chinese physicians are seeing the pandemic manifest different symptoms in people saying that the pathogen may be in changing in ways unknown and becomes difficult to combat it.
It is seen that these patients take one or two weeks longer to develop symptoms after infection from that of Wuhan. This delay is making it difficult for the authorities to isolate the patients and curb the spread. These longer periods also affect other people, thereby making a cluster of infections. A total of 46 cases have been reported for the past two weeks in two provinces. This resurgence had triggered a lockdown measured for a region with over 100 million people.
Researchers are still trying to figure out how the virus is changing and affecting people differently. With one of the most effective virus detection and testing regimes, China is still finding it difficult to contain the new cluster. Specualtuoms also arise on the mutating theories of the virus so that it is adapting itself to mankind. However, we need clear evidence to prove this scenario in the new clusters. This is only possible by further studies on the large scale population.
Physicians also add that symptoms of the new cluster affect mostly the lungs alone, whereas back in Wuhan, there was multi-organ damage. They also speculate this is spread from Russia, as the generic sequencing matches with them. China is aggressively taking precautions, as the annual political gathering in Bejing is scheduled this week. The country can make no mistake, or else it might lead to another havoc. Therefore, lockdown measures are issued in northeast provinces with a halt in train services, by closing schools, and sealing off residential areas.
